The answer is: there isn't one.

That being said, a post to our mailing list may help you:

check process riak matching "/path/to/riak/erts-5.7.5/bin/beam"
   group riak
   start program = "/path/to/riak/bin/riak start"
   if failed host localhost port 8098
        protocol HTTP request "/" then alert

(Note you will need to change the erlang version to the one you are currently using)
