Data Identifiy and Kill Idle Unix(SCO) Process called externally


Please let us know of any possiblity of identifying and killing unix proces invoked externally (by an external tool which does not create a session). 'who' command gives idle time of sessions. But what we are looking for is idle time of a process. 'ps' command gives the elapsed/running time of a process but not the idle time.

Thanks in Advance,
