Do you mind sharing your monit configuration for restarting the server? I encountered this piece of software for the first time and have a slightly hard time configuring it correctly

The following does not work correctly for me (yet):
check file metadata.db with path /home/calibre/Dropbox/Calibre/metadata.db
        if timestamp > 5 minutes
                then exec "/etc/init.d/calibre-server restart"
