I'm learning CentOS/RHEL and currently doing some stuff about process management.
The RHCSA book I'm reading describes running
kill 1234 as sending SIGQUIT. I always thought the kill command without adding a switch for signal type should default to
kill -15 and SIGKILL is
kill -9, right?
Does CentOS/RHEL use a slightly different method of
kill -15 or have I just been mistaken?
kill -l gives SIGQUIT as
kill -3 and it seems to be associated with using the keyboard to terminate a process.
man 7 signal also states that SIGQUIT is
kill -3, so I can only assume that my book is wrong in stating that SIGQUIT is
kill -15 default.
