you've told that an output file is getting generated (written into) continuously, in this case the fuser command wmay help you to identify the process.

fuser is used to show which processes are using a specified file.

Thanks for your suggestion but there is a little problem. You can get it from the script given below.
here is the script i am executing in background and want to kill now .


cd /IN/service_packages/OSA/IOR
##\rm -f flnm.latest flnm.old
##touch flnm.latest flnm.old

while :
/IN/service_packages/OSA/executables/ *IOR*3* > flnm.latest
file_to_send=`diff flnm.latest flnm.old|egrep "^(<|>)"|cut -c 18-|sort -u`

if [ -n "$file_to_send" ]
/IN/service_packages/OSA/executables/ $file_to_send >> /IN/service_packages/OSA/executables/ftp_ior_file.log
ftp -n -i <<!
user cellebrum cellebrum
mput `echo $file_to_send`
cp flnm.latest flnm.old
