you can use "check program" to trigger action if the program exists, something 

        check program myprocess with path "/usr/bin/pgrep mypattern"
                if status = 0 then exec "/my/script"

The pgrep returns 0 if some process matched => monit will execute script in 
such case.

I have also created new feature request for simple native process existence (in 
addition to existing "if does not exist" statement), so we may implement this 
in the future:
