The file /etc/default/monit is part of Ubuntu's monit package - if you 
installed monit using the binary distribution from then it is not present.

The line which you added to /etc/init.d/rc.local is for /etc/inittab - it 
cannot be used in rc.local.

You can add following line to the /etc/init.d/rc.local instead:
/usr/local/bin/monit -c /etc/monitrc 
... this will start monit in daemon mode.

Alternatively you can integrate monit with upstart this way:

1.) place the attached file as /etc/init/monit.conf
2.) run "initctl reload-configuration" command
3.) you can then start monit like this: "start monit"
