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
mysql_zap supports the following additional options:
o --help, -?, -I
Display a help message and exit.
Force mode. mysql_zap attempts to kill each process without confirmation.
Test mode. Display information about each process but do not kill it.
