Well we do not have any generic way but every server have at least one
process and it is quite easy to find it if you just got the name of it.

And the package maintainer should know about that name, and it is quite
easy to get the pid too.

if ps xa | grep -v grep | grep name; then

But maybe you are talking about something else, I do not know :)
