KILL Command in Unix


KILL Command in Unix:

KILL command in UNIX is used to kill the process which is running. We have to find the PID of the process which needs to be killed and pass that PID as argument.

Example for KILL Command in Unix:

Kill -9 command:

     This command is used to kill the process permanently. If the process does not kill properly when we use kill command, use the “-9” option which will the process completely. But we always recommend you use kill without -9 first and if there are any issues in killing the process then go for “kill -9”.
