Terminating a process

You can terminate problem processes.

Use the following procedure to terminate a problem process:

  1. Terminate the process that is causing the problem by typing:
    kill -9 PID
    Where PID is the ID of the problem process.
  2. Remove the files the process has been making by typing:
    rm file1 file2 file3
    Where file1 file2 file3 represents names of process-related files.
