I've started downloading large file (~30GB) on RedHat Linux using
wget via SSH. Then I decided to interrupt it, so I pressed
Ctrl+C. But suddenly it hanged. So I just closed the SSH connection. When I relogged into the system, I've found that this
wget process isn't dead:
PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND 14834 me 20 0 0 0 0 R 100.0 0.0 22:36.96 wget
So I've tried to execute
kill -9 14834, but it didn't help, despite the process has
R status. As far as I understand it's normal status for the process to be killed: it's neither zombie, nor uninterruptable. But why it can't be killed then?
P.S. As an another symptom I noticed that I can't
du the folder, where the downloading was initiated: listing hangs and I have to restart the SSH session. Can it be related to the problem above?
