Re: Script help

What service would you be checking to see if it is running? How would you check to see if that service is running? (ps, top, some other command, etc.)

Re: Script help

you could try this:

# PROCESS=inetd;ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -q $PROCESS && echo "BINGO!"

# PROCESS=no_such_process;ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -q $PROCESS && echo "BINGO!"

replace 'echo "BINGO!"' with your 'ovstart -c' command, and give the PROCESS variable the name of the process you want to check. Be sure that it is unique in the 'ps -ef' output!
