rwp installed monit onto wildebeest for monitoring via /etc/monit/conf.d/apache

WARNING: if you WANT the server to be OFFLINE then unless monit is told to stop the server that it will follow the runbook recipe and start it up again after it fails out.

monit stop apache2 will tell monit to stop it and stop monitoring it until told to monit start apache2 again later. There is also unmonitor in the event you want it to just stop watching it for a while during manual maintenance.
