To setup it up on Solaris, I used monit v5.14's monitrc as a sample and used it 
on this 5.5.1 package provided by CSW.  Also old school init script works even 
on Solaris 11.  See below.  Note that pkill monit is a bit too brutal as it may 
kill other processes containing 'monit' in their name.  Improvements are 

Install monit agent from CSW repo (

Then create a configuration from scratch e.g.,

/opt/csw/bin/amd64/monit -V
cd /etc/opt/csw/
vi monitrc
set mmonit http_or_https://monit:address@hidden:PORT]/collector
set daemon 30
set logfile syslog
set httpd port 2812 and
use address localhost
allow localhost
allow admin:monit

chmod 700 monitrc

Old school init script,

vi /etc/init.d/monit


case "$1" in
        pkill monit


        pkill monit

        pgrep -lf monit

        echo "Usage: $0 { start | stop | restart }"
        exit 1

chown root:sys /etc/init.d/monit
chmod 744 /etc/init.d/monit
ln -s ../init.d/monit /etc/rc2.d/S99monit
ln -s ../init.d/monit /etc/rc0.d/K99monit

Hope this helps!
