you can use the pattern based process check instead of the pidfile to prevent this problem:

I am able to install monit and monitor some of my processes. Monit works very nicely to restart my  processes when they fail.

I am using the pidfile to help recognize the process.

I have a question on process pid reuse.

Suppose a process crashes (seg faults) and its pid get recycled; ie some non-related process comes in with the pid.

The original pid is still in the pidfile created originally.

How does Monit recognize that a pid is recycled and not the original process (so now it should try to restart the original process).
