Is there any documentation (or an example) of the above token file.  I'd like to keep my apache log file from being 'disturbed' by monit if possible.

This is nothing fancy, the idea here is simply to setup monit to query for a certain document path so you can filter out the requests done by monit from the http access log. The content of the "token" file is not important, it may be an empty file for that matter. What's important is that monit always query a certain document path. Assume monit check the following URL, /monit.txt, where monit.txt can be any text file. To clear the log from all monit requests you can simply do something like this: egrep -v /monit.txt /var/logs/access-log > access-log-withoutmonit
