mysql_zap - kill processes that match a pattern
mysql_zap [-signal] [-?Ift] pattern
mysql_zap kills processes that match a pattern. It uses the ps command and Unix signals, so it runs on Unix and Unix-like systems. Invoke mysql_zap like this: shell> mysql_zap [-signal] [-?Ift] pattern A process matches if its output line from the ps command contains the pattern. By default, mysql_zap asks for confirmation for each process. Respond y to kill the process, or q to exit mysql_zap. For any other response, mysql_zap does not attempt to kill the process. If the -signal option is given, it specifies the name or number of the signal to send to each process. Otherwise, mysql_zap tries first with TERM (signal 15) and then with KILL (signal 9). mysql_zap supports the following additional options: · --help, -?, -I Display a help message and exit. · -f Force mode. mysql_zap attempts to kill each process without confirmation. · -t Test mode. Display information about each process but do not kill it.
