To monitor HHVM service up state under CentOS 7, create a file (typically in /etc/monit.d/ folder):
and place the following (example) configuration into it:
check process hhvm with pidfile /var/run/hhvm/hhvm.pid # change the path to PID file to reflect your setup (typically in /etc/hhvm/server.ini file) group hhvm start program = "/usr/bin/systemctl start hhvm.service" stop program = "/usr/bin/systemctl stop hhvm.service" if failed port 9000 type TCP then restart # Your port may be different, in this example port is 9000 if 5 restarts with 5 cycles then timeout
The configuration example needs to be adjusted for your paths and settings.
Then restart monit daemon to reload configuration:
systemctl restart monit
check monit is using the new configuraiton
It is assumed that monit service is configured, up and running.
