killing a process


Hi all,

trying to kill a process, tried both kill and kill -9 but no use...

Code:
# ps -ef|grep db
    root  8454280        1   0   Aug 17      -  0:14 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
    
# kill 8454280
# echo $?
0
# ps -ef|grep db
    root  8454282        1   0 09:42:19      -  0:00 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
   

and then tried

# kill -9 8454282
# echo $?
0
# ps -ef|grep db
    root  8454284        1   0 10:18:31      -  0:00 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
The process is still there ? any other way other than reboot ?

Maybe this will work better:
Code:
kill -9 `pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd`

@MCD555: Not sure what 'monit configured' is ?

@byannoni: you mean to copy and paste all of your code on command line ? as it is kill -9 `pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd`

Yes, literally type it, `pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd` is acctually part of the command.

sorry still little confused...but none below worked...

Code:
# kill -9 `pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd`
ksh: pidof:  not found.
ksh: kill: 0403-008 The number of parameters specified is not correct.

# kill -9 pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
ksh: pidof: Specify a process identifier or a %job number.

# kill -9 pidof 8454284
ksh: pidof: Specify a process identifier or a %job number.

# kill -9 8454284
# echo $?
0

# kill -9 8454286 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
ksh: /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd: Specify a process identifier or a %job number.
# kill -9 `8454286 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd`
ksh: 8454286:  not found.
ksh: kill: 0403-008 The number of parameters specified is not correct.


The process is still there

# ps -ef|grep db
    root 8454286       1   0 10:58:04      -  0:00 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd
    root 9830622 9961716   0 10:58:12  pts/0  0:00 grep db
#

The pidof command just give you the process number.
That info is used by kill -9.

Monit is a tool to monitoring and restart daemon and process on a server ...

what about
Code:
kill -9 $(pidof db2fmcd)
or
Code:
kill -9 $(pidof /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd)
, does one of these work?

Sorry, I didn't realize that you don't have pidof. Try these, at least one should work:
Code:
pkill -9 db2fmcd
pkill -9 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd

kill -9 `pgrep db2fmcd`
kill -9 `pgrep /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd`

killall -9 db2fmcd
killall -9 /opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd

Using "$()" is the same as using backticks.

Edit2:
What OS are you using? Is this a daemon/service?

Hi all,

thanks for your replies...i got it solved by commenting out the line corresponding to db2 in /etc/inittab file and the process is gone now.

Code:
# grep db2 /etc/inittab
:fmc:2:respawn:/opt/tivoli/tsm/db2/bin/db2fmcd #DB2 Fault Monitor Coordinator

and the process is gone now

# ps -ef|grep db2
    root 10158234  9961716   0 11:19:18  pts/0  0:00 grep db2
