NAME

       probe::signal.sys_tgkill - Sending kill signal to a thread group

SYNOPSIS

       signal.sys_tgkill

VALUES

       name
           Name of the probe point

       sig_name
           A string representation of the signal

       sig
           The specific kill signal sent to the process

       tgid
           The thread group ID of the thread receiving the kill signal

       pid_name
           The name of the signal recipient

       sig_pid
           The PID of the thread receiving the kill signal

DESCRIPTION

       The tgkill call is similar to tkill, except that it also allows the caller to specify the
       thread group ID of the thread to be signalled. This protects against TID reuse.
