I just want to kill the process ids through script for the user ABC.
I wrote the script until selecting the process Ids for the user
But i am logging with some other user other than ABC.
While kill the process ids i have to login with the User respectively and killing when maually doing.
For example my user is : myadm i want to kill the process id of the user ABC.
So in script itself i have to switch the user respectively and killing process IDS.
This is my requirement.

If my script is not correct atleast some extend can you please modify the script and please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Is there any way to kill all the process IDs for the specific user at a time?
