Last night, checkd fired off a warning that named had disappeared. So, at midnight my time, I'm forced to climb out of bed and troubleshoot the problem. Much to my satisfaction, things recovered within a minute. That's the good part. The bad part: checkd fired off its warning as a response to upcp updating bind packages and restarting the service. This is not the first time I've experienced such false warnings. When server packages are updated as a normal process, I do not expect monitors to wake me up. checkd needs to be updated such that it can be told to ignore a service for a moment so that cell phones all over the planet (literally, in our case) don't sound the alarm for no reason. As a sidebar, and possibly as a consequence of the bind update, upcp e-mail notification did not get delivered for this update, meaning that the only way I knew of the bind update was because of combing through /var/log/messages on a busy server. So, two things: 1. checkd should not trigger notifications for updates or cPanel-triggered service restarts; 2. upcp notifications should be delayed in case e-mail cannot be processed due to package updates. Thanks for letting me whine. I'm grumpy after my beauty sleep has been interrupted.
