to stop monit you can either call "monit quit" ("monit stop" stop only the services, not terminate monit) or send it SIGTERM like this: "killall -15 monit"

Hello all,

I have a requirement to have a monitoring system that will monitor a file and a 
remote server (+ more later maybe) and if one of both fails, the system should 
execute a scrip and then stop dead (i.e. monit stop).

A friend of mine pointed out monit as a great tool and I do say it is very 
impressive, but I am having problems getting my requirements done.
I have been playing around with monit all day but am unable to get this solved.

On one side I tried execs that would do the required tasks and then try to stop 
monit from inside the script.
But the tasks would only happen if I externally stopped monit.

Then I tried with stop programs, but that seems to be something completely 

Can I do this with monit?

Even if monit would not do it directly, can I get monit to terminate (monit not 
running in daemon mode) when a requirement is fulfilled?
