Hi,
the processes created by the different applications can be monitored. For details see the article How to monitor Linux processes.
Best regards

I wrote a custom sensor that I pass the name of the process I want to monitor. The script the checks ps eah and ubuntu services to return either 1 or 0 depending on if its found.

Pretty easy to do in python or bash.
