This is particularly useful when a process associated with a service is disabled via the chkconfig command.
Say if process atd is NOT running and chkconfig is set to not start the service at the current runlevel
atd 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
Can Monit be instructed to have it not restart ?
Its implied course that this would only be applicable with processes associated with an actual /etc/init.d/<service>
