the command 'ps -aux | grep esd' would return the running copies of every
ps outputs with the string 'esd' in it if its running including with the
running grep for esd.
i'd use 'ps -aux | grep -v grep | grep esd' as it  would return the same
info except it will
NOT return the grep instance as the '-v' argument tells it to ignore every
instance of the string
'grep' in the output. besides its is just plain more elegant.

Off topic, but one tip is to do:

  ... | grep [e]sd

which will match a running copy of 'esd', but not the grep command itself.

Is there no safe way to travel?  London, GB
