Thanks for fast reply, esp. to Alan Pae and Hutin Bertrand (sorry guys
for not replying directly).

Alan, as for my understanding, problem lies not in the script itself. 
When the script is invoked, event is outstanding for the whole time of
scirpt execution (I found no way to clear it earlier) and healthck
somewhow triggers this event again so we have endless loop (till system
resources are exhausted).  That's my hypothesis.

Bertrand suggested using Big Brother plugin
( and after all this
seems to be the best solution (modulo monitoring system of course - I'm
using Nagios (

Thanks again and best regards.
