Software :: Unable To Kill Process With Kill -9

Jan 13, 2011

the process is mcelog. When I do as root kill -9 2323 which is pid of mcelog the process is not killed. I tried doing the same from top, press K and enter pid of mcelog. doing ps auwx | grep mcelog I see there are several results. I tried killing all of them like kill -9 2355 2341 3425 2345. But re-running the above commands still shows them as running. How else would I troubleshoot this to avoid restarting of the box.

Debian :: Can't Kill Zombie Process

Feb 2, 2016

Sometimes (rarely) when I try to open VLC it wont open, but it stays in the background and takes 98-100% of one core.

The problem is that I can't kill that vlc-process.

Code: Select allkillall vlc
will NOT kill it
Code: Select allkill 31641
won't work either

top shows
Code: Select allPID       USER      PR  NI  VIRT        RES     SHR     S    %CPU   %MEM     TIME+     COMMAND
31641  xxxxxxxx   20   0   1320248   64384  39120   S   100.0         1.6     44:51.94     vlc

Is there any way to kill the vlc-process (without booting the machine)? I also tried the "killall vlc" and "kill 31641" as root with the same results.

I have Debian jessie and the only "nonofficial" repositories I have enabled are

#google chrome stable main
deb jessie-backports main

And from those I have installed only chrome, and wine-development, and I dont think those could have anything to do with this problem.

Booting the machine does work, but I don't want to boot my machine just now. This happens about once per week

General :: What To Do When Ctrl-c Can't Kill Process?

Feb 9, 2011

Ctrl-c doesn't always work to kill the current process (for instance, if that process is busy in certain network operations). In that case, you just see "^C" by your cursor, and can't do much else.What's the easiest way to force that process to die now without losing my terminal?

Summary of answers below:Usually, you can Ctrl-z to put the process to sleep, and then do "kill -9 process-pid", where you find the process's pid with 'ps' and other tools.On Bash (and possibly other shells) you can do "kill -9 %1" (or '%N' in general) which is easier. If Ctrl-z doesn't work, you'll have to open another terminal and kill from there.

General :: Kill Process Hogging Tcp Port?

Feb 25, 2010

I just bought an SSL cert and installed on my Apache server. When I restarted something went wrong so I had to change some config stuff and when I tried to restart apache for the second time I got this:

$ sudo apache2ctl start
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address
no listening sockets available, shutting down
Unable to open logs

Problem is that apache isn't running. For some reason there is something hogging my tcp 80 port, preventing apache from starting properly. How do I fix this? Is there a way to "free" a port?

Server :: Kill Process Upon Reaching 85% Cpu Usage?

Mar 13, 2010

We have an internal application which takes below 10% cpu usage normally. However sometimes it hit above 85% or more (and stays there) causing the server to become very slow. Currently we have to monitor this manually, kill the process and manually start it.

command / script that will kill the process (using pid will be the best option as i think) when it reaches 85% or higher

(I saw another question that suggested to use monit but I have to get this done using the standard commands available in the current installation - RHEL5)

OpenSUSE :: KDE Freeze - Cannot Kill Process And Open The Terminal

Jan 3, 2011

first time KDE and OpenSUSE user here, went from BSD to Windows now here with you, and I have a small problem. This is pretty much a fresh install, and KDE will sometimes become unresponsive and the computer will disconnect USB devices (mouse keyboard). Although I can still use the trackpad and keyboard on the laptop, no shortcuts work, I cannot kill process, open the terminal, or anything else, and can only reboot the compute via power switch.

I was told by an experienced Ubuntu user to try to replicate the error on demand and post the logs. The problem is, I can't. It will happen pretty randomly, sometimes when watching flash, or sometimes downloading from Yast2. I did take my last logs from a recent crash though and have the pastbin Jan 3 19:54:02 linux-yiyn su: (to root) kris on / - Linux logfile Also as a side note, although running on older hardware, OpenSUSE never seems to utilize more then 7% CPU (1.5Ghz single core) and 130Mb RAM (2Gb DDR). I am told this is unlike linux systems, that they usually idle high.

System: openSUSE 11.3 (i586)
KDE: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 3"

General :: Script To Kill Process With Specific Character

user1 18253 1 0 Feb09 ? 00:00:00 dbr UT:msmenu


I know I can grab the ones with what I want to kill (which are the ones with question marks) with:

# lostjobs | grep ?

what I need to know is how can I loop through the results of the second one and kill them by id (the second column).
