alert only when process exists

I am wondering if I can receive an alert when a process or a unix socket appears.  I can't figure out how to get an alert when the process appears.  I know this is a strange requirement but we can't figure out why a certain process gets started.  While we debug I would like to be alerted so I can kill it when it happens.  Any ideas how I would do this check?

Everything I tried alerts only when the process ends.  I know it is not right but conceptually it would be something like

      check process matching "/usr/local/bin/numSeriesAnalysisd"
              alert address@hidden only on { exist }
