    Question automating runs

    I've got a script running, which inturn spawns multiple child processes.
    How can I re-start the script immediately after all the child & parent processes of the first run finishes?

    As I'm away for the weekend, I need to automate this.

    So I would need some script that does the following
    a)keeps checking status & informs when all parent & child processes end.
    // that is the main bottle neck for me
    b)once this happens,start the script again

    Any ideas?

    keeps checking status
    You could check if your parent process is up with

    ps -e | grep processname

    in a controller script run as a cron job every min.
