How often should I monitor my Mutual Fund portfolio

I have two questions with regards to my mutual fund portfolio. My investment is through SIP's. 1) How often should I be monitoring my portfolio? 2) What should be my plan of action if one (or more) funds are not doing as well as its peers (or the index) for a sizeable duration of time, say 1 year or more? Should I be temporarily stopping the SIP on this fund? Should I be exiting and no longer investing? Should I be investing more? It is easy to assume that the fund performance would be consistent all through the years; if that is the case – well and good; If that is not the case (or there is a drop in the performance of one of the finds for a long duration), what should be the plan of action?

Am I going in right direction by minimising the number of MF scheme

I am Deepak 29 years old. I have buy 7 mutual schemes - DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund - Regular Plan(1000), Birla Sun Life Frontline Equity Fund(1000), ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Equity Fund (G)-1000, Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund - Regular Plan - 1000, Tata Balanced Fund - Regular Plan - 1500, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund - Regular Plan - 1000. As there are so many mutual fund schemes I have purchased now I am going to close Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund - Regular Plan - 1000, and put all the amount of this scheme in DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund - Regular Plan(1000) and will continue with only DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund - Regular Plan(1000); is am doing right thing? Because both the schemes are under small & mid cap category so instead of keeping both I will keep only one i.e., DSP BlackRock Micro Cap Fund. Also for Large cap category I have purchased Birla Sun Life Frontline Equity Fund (3000) & ICICI Prudential Focused Bluechip Equity Fund (G) - (1000) so I am going close one of them and continue with only one scheme kindly suggest which I should continue. My intention is to keep minimum schemes and take advantage of cumulative amount. Is I am going in right direction?
