Hi Mark,

I'd say your best bet is to use service-specific configuration
files shared across all servers, like one for ntpd, one for sendmail,

Then you could write a quick script to create /etc/monitrc before starting
monit.  So if the server detects that it needs to run ntpd and sendmail,
it might generate a monitrc file that looks like

   INCLUDE "/usr/local/etc/monit/sendmail.monitrc"
   INCLUDE "/usr/local/etc/monit/ntpd.monitrc"

The script would probably be quick to write, but definitely OS-specific.
Under RedHat it would be easy to check if something should be running
based on output from chkconfig --list, for example.
