- Kill all process of users in Ubuntu? 4 answers
I read in an online flash card that the command is:
pkill -u bob $(pgrep -u bob)
However, I think this is wrong. I think it's saying:
Kill all the processed owned by
[bob@localhost ~]$ pgrep -u bob 4572 4600
Also, it gives an error:
[bob@localhost ~]$ pkill -u bob $(pgrep -u bob) pkill: only one pattern can be provided Try `pkill --help' for more information.
Which makes sense because you can't have newlines in usernames, right?
I think the command should only be:
pkill -u bob
To "kill all processes owned by bob"
While the command:
pgreg -u bob
Gives "all processes owned by bob"
- Am I uses the right commands as intended?
- Is my analysis of the incorrect way accurate?
