That is a ps command (process status (with a bug, see below), and a grep
command looking for the 
Mailman qrunner processes.

Issue the following command on your system (assumes Linux or a BSD based

 ps auxxw|grep  -i qr 

This will look through the processes running on your system and if it
doesn't show 8 lines 
Then your queue runners aren't running. 

If they aren't running, issue as root:

/path/to/mailman/home/bin/mailmanctl start

And arrange for that command to be issued at system boot.
