UNIX – Lesson 024 – Job and Job Scheduling – ps and kill commands

In Unix, every program running on system is called process.

Each application can fork more than one process.

Each process has an identification number called :

  • PID (Process ID)

and the forking process ID is called

  • PPID (parent PID).

It is possible to run time consuming programs in background.



The “ps” command is used to get a list of process running

Syntax :
ps [options]

Key argument:

  • -e lists information about every process now running
  • -f generates a full listing
  • -u uidlist lists only process data whose effective user ID number or login
    name is given in “uidlist”. Normally used with “f”

Example :
$ ps

12569 ttyp9 0:00 ps
12554 ttyp9 0:00 sh

$ ps –ef

root 1 0 0 Sep 3 ? 0:54 init
root 2 0 0 Sep 3 ? 84:41 sh

$ ps –fu xarabas

xarabas 1 0 0 Sep 3 ? 1:54 init
xarabas 2 0 0 Sep 3 ? 54:41 xclock

The “kill” command sends a terminate signal to a process

kill [-s signal_name [signal_number]] PID [PID …]

The kill table signal (usually used)

Signal Name Signal Number Description
HUP 1 Hang up signal
KILL 9 Kill (cannot be ignored)

Use the command
kill –l
to get a complete list of all signal

Example :
$kill 995 #by default kill send TERM signal

$kill –9 995 #send –KILL signal
