I am trying to run a very complex statistical model that I expected to take a very long time, so I used
nohup to run the process. However, I underestimated the length and it would take like 260+ days to complete so I want to cancel the process.
I attempted using
ps aux |grep nohup to get the PID, I get the following output:
\<username> 4920 0.0 0.0 14224 972 pts/15 S+ 01:53 0:00 grep nohup
When I use
kill -9 14224 I am told there is no process. So I used
ps -ef | grep beast-2 as I do not remember the entire command I entered. Pulls up the following:
144039 1 0 Jul22 pts/12 00:00:00 /bin/sh /opt/anaconda3/bin/beast-2 -seed 777 -working -overwrite -instances 3 -threads 3 -beagle_SSE /home/<username>/XML/ST736_MTBD1.xml
kill -9 144039 and check again but the process is still running underneath a new PID.
What can I do?
