Monit to Control VPN Down



  • Hello, I use monit to warn me of services going wrong on pfsense, and if possible restar them. I use it on services like DNS and OpenVPN. On OpenVPN I'm able to check if the client service is running (checking the PID of the process) but I'm not able to check if the link is UP or DOWN, any ideas how can I check this?

    Thank You All



  • You can use Services Watchdog for pfsense services monitoring, if are having openvpn hang problems, the proccess still is there but unresponsive like a zombi and service chekers does not work, try removing openvpn pluging from main dashboard.
