monit runs the start/stop programs in a sandbox and strips all environment variables (for security reasons) - it sets only the spartan path: "PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin"

If your script depends on some environment variable, it may fail when executed by monit. You can log the script output by wrapping it like this:

start program = "/bin/bash -c '/sbin/service flexlm start >> /tmp/flexlm_start.log 2>&1'"

You can also pass the variables in the bash command or create some wrapper which will set the variables and call start.

Martin, thankyou very much for that.
I was not aware that the start script needed any environment variables - it should set them internally.
Perhaps it does though.
