Re: [monit] empty pidfile

In this case monit should restart the process - can you try to run it with -v 

  monit -vI

I think the problem could be that the startup script which is called by monit 
exits when it finds existing pidfile. 

As workaround you can either modify the program startup script to handle empty 
pidfile or set monit test to do so:

  check file /var/run/
    if size = 0 then exec "/bin/rm /var/run/"
