ANY_ACTIVE or ANY_RUNNING - to check Parallel tasks

I am trying to limit the number of parallel processes by using a pre-condition to check if a copy of the job is already running.

I would like to know the difference between ANY_ACTIVE and ANY_RUNNING. Does ANY__ACTIVE mean , any job/flow which is in the activities with status activated? or its actually running?

which one is the most effective way to avoid parallel processing. Also, any ideas to handle this are also welcome.

Thank you.
