Hi Christian,
Thanks for the reply....
The problem with my server process is that it doesnt create any pid file on start up....i had manually created a pid file for the server and copied the pid of the process in it....then only was monit able to monitor it (it showed the status as running).
Thats why i asked that how would monit come to know the pid of the server when restarting it.
Is there ne way to make a process create a pid file after startup???
If not then given the situation of how i create the pid file..what should i do to make monit restart my process.

by looking in the pid file you specified in the monit.conf like in
'check process server with pidfile /var/run/'

no, the proccess you started itself is responsible for placing its pid
in the pidfile - or your startup script if the proccess itself is not
able to do so
