“run-one” is a command-line tool in Linux that allows you to run just one instance of a command at a time. It is particularly useful when you have a process that you don’t want to run more than once, such as a backup job or a cron job that might take a long time to complete.
When you run a command using run-one, it checks to see if another instance of the same command is already running. If there is, it will not start a new instance of the command but will instead exit immediately. If there is no other instance of the command running, run-one will start a new instance of the command and keep track of it so that it can prevent other instances from starting.
