I use "pgrep zebrasrv" but ps, top, task manager and many others
might also show it.

One way would be to look for recent changes to the zebra data files.
They're probably in var/lib/zebradb near where koha is installed.

Another is to connect to the server with a z39.50 client and try a
search.  yaz-client is one and there's probably a detailed example
in the list archives.

> - What does “see INSTALL” mean?

There is a file called INSTALL in the top folder of the Koha download,
like in many FOSS project downloads.  It contains essential reading
for getting up and running, including some mention of zebrasrv.

Hope that helps,
