Heh, no. That's too easy. Most applications come with manual pages and documentation. While some may regard certain documentation as stale, incomplete, overly technical or outright cryptic the manual page for monit definitely does state what monit does and how it does that in a non-ambiguous way. While you may not like it reading manual pages and documentation, preferably before executing commands, enhances self-reliance and helps keep the system from malfunctioning. Executing commands in a happy-go-lucky fashion OTOH eventually leads to fear. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate and hate leads to thinking prequels are a Good Thing.
