    METRON-132 Manage all sensors and topologies with Monit

    Adds Monit as a process watchdog to manage all sensors and topologies.
    - Monit web interface exposed at http://hostname:2812 which can be used to start, stop,
check status of any of the sensors or topologies.
    - When monitoring is enabled (on by default) if a process dies, it will be restarted.
    - Monit command line tools also simplify the process of managing Metron ingestion.
        For example, tired of the noise from your laptop fan when running Metron's 'single
node vagrant'?  This will quiet her down.  Finally, peace and quiet!
        monit stop all
        Need to work on a single ingest feed?
        monit start bro
        monit start bro-topology
        Getting cold and need some heat?  Start everything.
        monit start all
    - Post-deployment report for Amazon-EC2 provides links to Monit's web interface.
      ok: [localhost] => {
        "Success": [
            "Apache Metron deployed successfully",
            "   Metron          @",
            "   Ambari          @",
            "   Sensor Status   @",
            "   Topology Status @",
            "For additional information, see'"
    - Will not monitor a service that is not installed.

> Need a simple way to manage all of the ingestion feeds for Metron.  Need to be able to
easily stop, start, restart, check status.  Also need these ingestion feeds to be monitored
so that if they go down, they will be restarted automatically.
