Question process running on server and mail

Hello all,
I would be happy if any one could help me with a shell script that would determine all the processes running on a Unix server and post a mail if any of the process is not running or aborted.

Thanks in advance

First, read the rules - no double posting or bumping post to get an answer.

Next, these forums are meant to help those that help themselves. Meaning you start writing the script and when you get to a problem, post it and we assist in solving your problem. Just look at how you normally would solve this problem from the command line and put it into a file which you then set to executable.

I don't see anything attached.

Try a copy/paste into the window where you type this message.
Use code with square brackets

server process monitoring via mail

hi guys,
i'm back with a small problem.
i have now written a script that will grep for a process and will notify me if not running.
pid='ps -ef | grep "<process string>" | awk ' {print $2}''
echo $pid
if [ "$pid"="" ]
echo "process not running"
rsh <mail server> mailx -s "<etc etc process not running>" <>
echo service is ok
now i'm have a problem in the mailing section.
can any one tell me how i can redirect the output to a file and send it via mail if the process i'm greping is not runnning. i tried the above syntax and failed.

And one more help how can i find the parent process that aare running so that i can make a list of those important process.

kindly some one look into this and reply at earliest.

Instead of
rsh <mail server> mailx -s "<etc etc process not running>" <>
mailx -s "<etc etc process not running>" < /dev/null
