this is not supported currently, but you can simply use cron to enable/ disable monitoring if the service when needed.

You can set the monitoring mode to manual (se the service is not automatically monitored) like this:

  check process foobar with pidfile /var/run/
    start program = "..."
    stop program = "..."
    mode manual

and cron entries:

0 8 * * * /usr/bin/monit monitor foobar
0 19 * * * /usr/bin/monit unmonitor foobar

the first entry will enable monitoring of service foobat at 8:00 every day
the second entry disables monitoring at 19:00

I monitor a computer that is usually turned off at night. Is it possible to instruct monit to check this host only during the day? Or to check it
