Thanks Johan Van!

I use Monit and virtual adapters too! But I never configure together.

This is my configuration for mythbackend restart:

check process mythbackend with pidfile /var/run/mythtv/mythbackend.pid
 start program = "/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start"
 stop program  = "/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop"

Could you send me your configuration to detect the virtual adapters
and restart the "forbidden_soft"?

Thanks and best regards.
