Scheduler and alert management tool
'mon' is a general-purpose scheduler and alert management tool used for monitoring service availability and triggering alerts upon failure detection. It supports arbitrary monitoring facilities and alert methods via a common interface, all of which are easily implemented with programs in C, Perl, shell, etc., SNMP traps, and special mon traps. 'mon' views resource monitoring as two separate tasks: the testing of a condition, and triggering an action upon failure. It implements each task as separate, stand-alone programs. mon is fundamentally a scheduler which executes the monitors (each test a specific condition), and calls the appropriate alerts if the monitor fails. The decision to invoke an alert is governed by logic which offers various "squelch" features and dependencies.
