Remotely kill a process

Hi guys,
is there a way to send a term signal or kill a process on a remote node from a shell script?


thanks

Pludi, do you have any idea how to end a process by name and not PID, since PID's change all the time.

thanks

Option 1: using killall <name>, but this will probably also get other processes by that name
Option 2: get the PID from ps -ef and then use it with kill

pkill <name>

risky thing


better

ps -ef | grep name

like pludi wrote

check the output, and then kill the process
