RESTARTING PROCESSES


There are times when you are
testing a process and have to
restart it again and again.

Instead of doing a ps -ef to
know the pid and kill it manually
every time, you can automate the
process by using the following in
a script.

kill `ps -ef | grep \`whoami\` | grep myProcess | grep -v grep
| awk '{print $2}'`

The ps command on your flavor may
use "ax" instead of "ef". Where
myProcess is the process that needs
to be restarted. The awk commands
gets the 2nd field of the line, which
in this case is the PID.
