This is a standalone policy that will restart three CFEngine processes if they are not running.

body common control
{
bundlesequence => { "process_restart" };
}


bundle agent process_restart
{
vars:

  "component" slist => {                  # List of processes to monitor
                         "cf-monitord",
                         "cf-serverd",
                         "cf-execd"
                       };

processes:

  "$(component)"
      # Set the class "<component>_not_running" if it is not running:
      restart_class => canonify("$(component)_not_running");

commands:

  "/var/cfengine/bin/$(component)"
    if => canonify("$(component)_not_running");

}

Notes: The canonify function translates illegal characters to underscores, e.g. start_cf-monitord becomes start_cf_monitord. Only alphanumerics and underscores are allowed in CFEngine identifiers (names of variables, classes, bundles, etc.)

This policy can be found in /var/cfengine/share/doc/examples/unit_process_restart.cf.

Example run:

# ps -ef |grep cf-
root      4305     1  0 15:14 ?        00:00:02 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-execd
root      4311     1  0 15:14 ?        00:00:05 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-serverd
root      4397     1  0 15:15 ?        00:00:06 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-monitord
# kill 4311
# ps -ef |grep cf-
root      4305     1  0 15:14 ?        00:00:02 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-execd
root      4397     1  0 15:15 ?        00:00:06 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-monitord
# cf-agent -f unit_process_restart.cf
# ps -ef |grep cf-
root      4305     1  0 15:14 ?        00:00:02 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-execd
root      4397     1  0 15:15 ?        00:00:06 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-monitord
root      8008     1  0 18:18 ?        00:00:00 /var/cfengine/bin/cf-serverd
#

And again, in Inform mode:

# kill 8008
# cf-agent -f unit_process_restart.cf -I
