This question already has an answer here:
I am running a command on a server. It comes with this library http://www.graphicsmagick.org/.
Basically I have a for loop that does image procession on a lot of files.
Command runs for hours and will run for hours. I am wondering, can I exit ssh and still have those commands running on remote machine? Does exiting ssh sends some signal to end current command execution?
The other thing that I noticed..Although I am running command remotely, my laptop is overheating. Activity monitor shows bash is using 70% of cpu. I am on macbook pro
Now this is strange. How can remote command cause strain on local machine?
