This paper describes a structured approach to encoding monitors in an actor language. Within a configuration of actors, each of which publishes a history, a monitor is an independent actor that triggers an action based on patterns occurring in the actor histories. The paper defines a model of monitors using features of an actor language called ESL including time, static types and higher-order functions. An implementation of monitors is evaluated in the context of a simple case study based on competitive bidding.
