I have looked at those sites, but they did not help, I cant get the "at now + 1 min" to go along with start, stop or restart a process.
To start a process I just write the path to it, and I have to use the PID to kill it, is there any other way? to start, stop and restart using 'at'?

I'm not too familiar with 'at' but I would do something like invoke a script via 'crontab' file.
The script will do the following
1)Start the process-A
2)Get pid of the process using 'echo $!'
2.1)Sleep for 120 seconds
3) kill the process id obtained in step 2
4)Start the process again

Taking the Apache web server as an example I can do the following as root:
at now +2 min<ENTER> systemctl restart apache2<ENTER> <CTRL+D>
at now +2 min<ENTER> service httpd restart<ENTER> <CTRL+D>
#!/bin/bash mkdir test cd test echo "Hello world" > hello.txtCode:
chmod +x test.sh
at now +2 min<ENTER> ~/Documents/scripts/test.sh<ENTER> <CTRL+D>
