I do this without monit. Run a script from cron every x minutes. If it detects 
an offline printer, it restarts cups and only then generates output/sends an 

monit does not yet support external scripts for tests unfortunately. You could 
hack something together using maybe the file content check though it's usually 
not worth it.
