fixproc - Fixes a process by performing the specified action. SYNOPSIS
fixproc [-min n] [-max n] [-check | -kill | -restart | -exist | -fix] proc ... DESCRIPTION
Fixes a process named "proc" by performing the specified action. The actions can be check, kill, restart, exist, or fix. The action is specified on the command line or is read from a default database, which describes the default action to take for each process. The data- base format and the meaning of each action are described below. OPTIONS
-min n minimum number of processes that should be running, defaults to 1 -max n maximum number of processes that should be running, defaults to 1 -check check process against database /local/etc/fixproc.conf. -kill kill process, wait 5 seconds, kill -9 if still exist -restart kill process, wait 5 seconds, kill -9 if still exist, then start again -exist checks if proc exists in ps && (min <= num. of processes <= max) -fix check process against database /local/etc/fixproc.conf. Perform defined action, if check fails. V5.6 16 Nov 2006 fixproc(1)

KILL(1) 						      General Commands Manual							   KILL(1)

kill - terminate a process with extreme prejudice SYNOPSIS
kill [ -sig ] processid ... kill -l DESCRIPTION
Kill sends the TERM (terminate, 15) signal to the specified processes. If a signal name or number preceded by `-' is given as first argu- ment, that signal is sent instead of terminate (see sigvec(2)). The signal names are listed by `kill -l', and are as given in /usr/include/signal.h, stripped of the common SIG prefix. The terminate signal will kill processes that do not catch the signal; `kill -9 ...' is a sure kill, as the KILL (9) signal cannot be caught. By convention, if process number 0 is specified, all members in the process group (i.e. processes resulting from the current login) are signaled (but beware: this works only if you use sh(1); not if you use csh(1).) Negative process numbers also have special meanings; see kill(2) for details. The killed processes must belong to the current user unless he is the super-user. The process number of an asynchronous process started with `&' is reported by the shell. Process numbers can also be found by using ps(1). Kill is a built-in to csh(1); it allows job specifiers of the form ``%...'' as arguments so process id's are not as often used as kill arguments. See csh(1) for details. SEE ALSO

A replacement for ``kill 0'' for csh(1) users should be provided. 4th Berkeley Distribution April 20, 1986 KILL(1)
