Unix Tip #4543- August 19, 2013

KILL A USER, IN THE UNIX SENSE


DISCLAIMER: UGU is not telling you to kill your users.
If you so choose to it is at your own discretion and you
are doing it at your own risk.

Although we all have that ONE USER...

To kill all the processes associated with a particular user
simply:

# kill -9 `ps -aef|grep jondoe |awk '{ print $2 }'`

If you want to be a nice admin, tell him first.


NOTE: All tips provided are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Tips are submitted by various unix admins around the globe. UGU suggest you read and test each tip in a non-volitile environment before placing into production.
