Ways to Prevent "failed to grab lock" Error

Explorer | Level 3

Is there a way to check if there are running processes given the user's account? I don't want to get any errors related to concurrency or locks, so I was thinking of polling the account until there are no changes being made, then sending the API request to make the changes that I want.

No, there's nothing quite like that. You should make sure your app is able to handle lock contention errors like this, since they can occur at any time.
