Please you need to modify below script to fit your need:

mytty=`tty`
nop=`ps -t $mytty | wc -l`
if $nop -gt 100
then
      mail -s "too many processes running on $mytty" username@domain
fi

Does ps -t mean child processes

The command

ps -t ttyname

will show all processes attached to that tty. Processes that are detached from tty will not be reported.
