Cleaning Message Queues

i have an application installed on AIX 5.3 and i have made a script that shutdown a proccesses that exceeded 10000kb of memory usage but i have a problem with cleaning the message queues of these proccesses after shutting them down. Is there any way to clean the message queues for this particular proccesses ??

thanks Smilie

How are you killing this process? It's possible that if you let it shutdown cleanly it may delete them itself.

buy kill command

well it doesn't and the message queues still exist even after shutting the processes down

Smilie And how are you using the kill command?

There's different signals it can send, some more severe than others. You might be sending the wrong signal and forcing it to quit before it can clean up after itself.

Are you clearing the message queues using ipcrm at all...
