How can I tell if a StackScript is running?

Linode Staff

How can I check whether a StackScript is being executed? When I check in the Linode's Console I'm not seeing a process the script.

StackScripts are downloaded onto the Linode as /root/StackScript. You can test to see if a StackScript is running with the following command:

ps aux | grep [S]tackScript

The [] around the S are optional, but will prevent the grep command itself from showing up in the results.
