What type of daemon?

eg: To see if my pop3 daemon is running I use sockstat... "sockstat | grep
110" and process the output.
eg: To see if my mail redirect daemon is running I
check /var/run/red_mail.pid

All depends on what you want to do as to how you do it. You could even do
it in a multitude of ways and use the resulting matrix to determine.
