I have two instances of a process running. One of them is "frEAkIng oUT!" and printing errors non stop to STDOUT.
I want to kill the broken process but I have to make sure I don't terminate the wrong one. They were both started about at the same time and using
top I can see they both use about the same amount of memory and CPU. I can't seem to find anything that points to which process is behaving badly.
The safest thing would be to figure out which process/pid is writing to STDOUT.
Is there any way to do that?
/dev/null). Are you sure you don't mean a particular file instead (like a terminal device, or a log file...)?
