Alert "Monitoring restart -- Does not exist proftpd"

  • Hi, I had a power outage last night in the wee hours and I received this alert email after the RPi3B+ rebooted. I don't know how to interpret it.

    The system monitoring needs your attention.

    Host: \MyFileServer

    Date: Thu, 02 Dec 2021 04:17:58

    Service: proftpd

    Event: Does not exist

    Description: process is not running

    This triggered the monitoring system to: restart


    Near as I can tell by Googling "proftpd" is that it is a FTP server. I don't have ftp enabled on this setup. Ignore?


    Followup Question: Is there a way to have OMV mail a "System Started" email in the case of a power outage/restart? Maybe the above alert could be interpreted that way. It does have the word "restart" in it!


    Thank you!

    Setup a scheduled job that runs at reboot with

    mail -s "Server Rebooted" user@example.com < /dev/null


    I don't have ftp enabled on this setup. Ignore?

    If it only happens once or so, yes.
