My script accepts a process name as an input and kills it. I tried using pgrep but it's returning two PIDs , one for the process which is running and one for the script which accepts the process name as input, so am stuck! I tried using the
-fo option too but that did not help either. Any suggestions would be helpful.
This is my script
#!/bin/bash ProcessName=$1 pID= pgrep -fl $ProcessName echo $pID
So, when I invoke the script, it's returning two PIDs:
bash-3.00$ ./dynamic_values.sh test-Process 10534 /xxx/xxo/xxx/xxe --run --propFile /application/test/test-Process_Archive.tra --innerProcess 23401 /bin/bash ./dynamic_values.sh test-Process
I was expecting just 10534, but it picked up the script too . Version of OS just in case:
bash-3.00$ uname -a Linux xxxxxx 2.6.9-67.0.1.
