ps -ef |grep vmtrace

no when vmtrace have been started, it is not there anymore.
Anyway, vmtrace should be used on support query only, be sure to be up to date with vm patch because there is a risk of panic. So you should ask that question to your support contact who asked for vmtrace.
2 way to check:
1) rerun vmtrace, if it is already running it won't succeed in starting it
2) echo vmtrace_mode/X | adb -o /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem
echo vmtrace_enabled/X | adb -o /stand/vmunix /dev/kmem
if the 2 are 0 means it is not started and have not been configured
else it is started, and only reboot can permit to change vmtrace configuration.
