RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for tkill (redhat section 1)

TKILL(1)				    LAM TOOLS					 TKILL(1)

NAME
       tkill - Terminate LAM on one node.

SYNTAX
       tkill [-dhvN] [-f <killfile>]

OPTIONS
       -d	      Turn on debugging mode.  This implies -v.

       -h	      Print the command help menu.

       -v	      Be verbose.

       -N	      Pretend; do not take action.

       -f <killfile>  Use <killfile> as the name of the kill file.

DESCRIPTION
       The  tkill  tool  terminates the LAM session started by hboot(1) on the local node.  tkill
       makes use of a kill file created by the LAM kernel, which contains the process identifiers
       of  every  LAM  process in ASCII format.  A SIGHUP (see signal(3)) signal is sent to every
       process listed in the kill file.  tkill waits a short period of time for each  process  to
       die.   By adding the debug option, the user can see the final disposition of each process.
       The mission is accomplished if all processes end up dead.

       In LAM, the first process to be killed is always the kernel.  When the kernel receives its
       termination  signal, it propagates the signal to all of its constituent processes.  There-
       fore, tkill will ordinarily be racing the kernel to kill all other processes.  This redun-
       dant  aspect  of  tkill allows it to be used as a general purpose tool in association with
       hboot(1).

FILES
       /tmp/lam-$USER@<hostname>     the kill file, created by the kernel,  where  $USER  is  the
				     userid, and <hostname> is the name of the local machine
