Resources

monit_monitrc

The following will create a monitrc configuration:

monit_monitrc "ssh" do
  variables({ category: "system" })
end

The name parameter must match a file located in your templates directory. In the example above, this would be ssh.monitrc.erb.

The variables option within the block is optional, and can contain a list of key-value pairs to assign within your template.

Usage

This cookbook installs the monit components if not present, and pulls updates if they are installed on the system.
