Is there an explicit way only to check if HA agent is runnning on command line.

I wanted to know if there is any command to explicitly check the status of an HA agent. I ask this question out of curiosity.

Adding to it, while i was browsing through the running processes on ESX host, i saw a few processes among them.

root 9060 1 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:14 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftAgent -d vmware

root 9083 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:00 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftStateMon

root 9092 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:01:00 /opt/vmware/aam/bin/ftProcMon -domain vmware

root 9166 9060 0 Feb19 ? 00:00:01 /opt/vmware/aam/ha/VMap

ftagent spawns other processes as well. So can anyone please shed some light on the significance of these process and on what they are meant to do?

Thanks in advance for any info. provided.

if you are only interested in if the HA agent is running

ps -ef | grep ftAgent

should be sufficient.
