Yes, port monitoring exist in OTP 19:

"OTP-11384    Application(s): erts

                Make it possible to monitor/demonitor ports using the
                erlang:monitor/2 API. The process and port information
                functions have also been updated to include information
                about monitors from processes to ports."
