Monitor and restart thunderbird using monit

Post by tas » 2020/12/01 05:21:21

Hello there, :)

I'd like to know if it is possible to monitor Thunderbird using a utility such as Monit and restart Thunderbird if it is not running.
I'm unable to find a command to do so as it is not a service and the PID changes when Thunderbird restarts.
I was thinking of adding it as an upstart service in CentOS 6 and then configure Monit to monitor that service.
I'm not sure if this is the way to approach this?

Since CentOS 6 died yesterday there is no point in doing this.

CentOS 6 is dead and will receive no more updates. It is time to move to a newer version.
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
