Monit is really the wrong tool for that, it's roughly along the lines of trying to drive a nail with a staple gun. You can probably do it, but a hammer would work a lot better.
You would be much better off using something like sec (http://simple-evcorr.sourceforge.net/) to watch your cacti log and make sure you get the "SYSTEM STATS:" message at least once every log cycle. I think sec can do that, I haven't ever tried to make it try to check for a message appearing, only for errors within a message.
There is also a nagios plugin that will watch the cacti log, that might be something to look at as well. http://forums.cacti.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15239

Assunto: Re: Monitoring cacti process/PID with Monit
Monit isn't designed to monitor something like cacti that doesn't run as a daemon. Cacti instead is a process started by cron that runs periodically (typically ever 5 minutes).
What is it that you are really trying to do? Are you just trying to make sure that every Cacti run has completed successfully?

Is it possible to avoid this behavior? How can I monitor CACTI and avoid Monit to flood e-mails of PID changes? Regards Atenciosamente--
