Snap Health checks/monitoring running status

I got a question that I couldn't find any answers to on google/mailing
lists etc.

How do you keep a snap application alive, i.e. let's say I have an FFMPEG
session that needs to run 24/7 (recording a camera), and on occasion it
crashes. Traditionally I have used monit to "watch it" and restart it when
it dies.

How does this work with snaps?
