For conclusion, we can check if there are two process
running but then if some one use tgtd with -f flag the
script will not work.

On the other hand, we can check if such process exists
(without checking the amount of process).
This way, the script will work on both cases but
won't catch the bug on the main daemon (if exist).

Which solution should we use?
