Is it possible to have an entry for a service in monit where

  • the service is not started on system startup and on monit startup
  • and monit displays it's status
  • and only starts or stops it, when I press the start or stop button in the http interface?

You want monit to check the service in manual mode. Take a look at the keyword mode (hint: manual) in the monit man page, section THE RUN CONTROL FILE.
