Try the following through SSH as "root":

/etc/init.d/syslog restart
/etc/init.d/crond restart
/etc/init.d/cced.init restart
/usr/sbin/swatch -C /etc/swatch.conf

Not all of these commands may be needed, but please use all of them for good 
measure. It restarts the Syslog daemon, Crond, cced.init and finally runs the 
"Active Monitor" script to update the status of the monitored services.

Well, a reboot should have taken care of this, too. Weird that it didn't sort 
you out. 

With best regards
