$ ps -e -T | grep myp | grep -v grep 797 797 ? 00:00:00 myp 797 798 ? 00:00:00 myp 797 799 ? 00:00:00 myp 797 800 ? 00:00:00 myp
This shows the process
myp with PID = 797 and four threads with different SPIDs.
How can I kill a particular thread of the process without killing the whole process. I understand that it might not be possible at all in some cases when there are fatal dependencies on that particular thread. But, is it possible in any case? Is yes, how?
kill 799 and the process itself was terminated. Now I am not sure this was because there were dependencies that made
myp fail without the process
800 or because kill is simple not able to kill individual processes.
