in thread How can i check my script is already running?
Just a note: you need to exclude your "ps" check from the list of processes returned since it will also match your script path.
I like to use the following trick, so as not to invoke an additional grep:
$ ps aux | grep [i]nit
root 1 0.0 0.0 23820 2024 ? Ss 08:23 0:01 /sbin
