Box Sync running script

I need a script to check that Box Sync is running in the background. I have tried adding a few as extension attributes but they don't seem to work. I just need a report to see if the process is actually running or not.

Any ideas?

As a start, this works fine as an extension attribute:

#!/bin/bash

box_status=$(ps aux | grep "Box Sync Monitor" | grep -v "grep")

if [ ! -z "$box_status" ]; then
    echo "<result>Running</result>"
else
    echo "<result>Not Running</result>"
fi
