Can systemd replace monit?

Essentially monit is a monitoring tool, which you configure tests that will be evaluated at certain intervals. If one of the tests fails, then it will take action depending on the rules you assign to it. Monit can monitor processes and restart them when required. It’s possible to restart a process based on CPU usage or memory, for instance.

Can I do the same only with Systemd? If so, how could it be done?
