I'm not responsible for this "pid changed event', this is due to
/etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/ntp used on Ubuntu when DHCP/Interface
We use this mostly on +200 laptops that move around the country
roaming between different private network ranges.
Since monit is "always on", it's a nice way of knowing device IP
and, if needed, remotely accessing them, besides the normal operator replacement tasks.
I've noticed this behavior and was wondering if there is a way of
reducing M/Monit processing by disabling this "event".
I'm not really using M/Monit for this, although I've bought and use one for the server farms.
For the laptops I use a custom django-monit because we don't need notifications and the integration with operator and helpdesk web based "console".
I'm now ignoring it, but I still get events and need to parse them.

> The PID changes the process which is monitored by Monit is restarted externally (e.g. manually) … in general when the process is monitored, the restart should be either done via monit or the monitoring should be disabled+enabled during the restart, otherwise if monit detects that the process is not running, it will try to restart it, whereas the manual restart could be pending. How the system will deal with the parallel restart attempts depends on the start methods.
