I am using ./check_procs for reporting number of running processes and I
tested now -C option.
You have right "OK - 0 processes running with command name ...."

I only know: check_procs uses ps command from shell but I don't know

I don't mean to be stupid, but ....  It's clear I don't understand  the
command line arguments.  I've tried playing with several combinations of
arguments, but they all yield "OK".   What should the arguments be to
verify that exactly one instance of the process is running?  (I think
I've got the -C part right, it's the rest that's causing me grief).

oboe:/usr/local/nagios/libexec# ./check_procs -w 1-1 -c 1-1 -C fetchmailx
OK - 0 processes running with command name fetchmailx
