you can use the process check to test the daemon, and file check to see whether it writes the expected string to the log for example something like this:

set daemon 60 # monit cycle is set to 1 minute

check process smartd with pidfile /var/run/
   start program = ...
   stop program = ...

check file syslog with path /var/log/syslog
    if not match "smart" for 30 cycles then alert   # expect the string "smart" every 30 cycles => every 30 minutes

I would like to monit smartd, the SMART hard drive daemon. This process has a PID but does not have open TCP/UDP ports that I normally use to monit daemons.  smartd writes to a log file every 30 minutes. Since smartd is a component of system integrity, it should be guaranteed to be running.
Any suggestions to monit smartd?
