How new can you be when you've been a member for over a year and this is your 60th post?

That aside, your question is too vague for any useful feedback.

If you are talking about shell scripting, you can "remember" a background job by saving the value of $!.

To stop it, use kill.

As to how to detect an "issue", you have provided insufficient information.

Regards,
Alister
