- Context: Ran a backup thinking it'd take no more than 1-hour... and it's still going. The process is a MySQL DB backup that has the DB tables locked.
- OS: CentOS-5.x
- Goal: Find and kill remotely a process running on CentOS-5.x
Possible Requested Help:
(1) How do I find it, meaning how do I view all process and sort by CPU use; since I have no idea what the process is, but I'm guessing it's taking up most the CPU cycles now and has a name I'll figure out.
(2) How do I kill it. Please use the following notation, where # is the CMD-line itself:
# cd / -- meaning change directory to root. If the command allows sudo to be used, include it if if it's unlikely to be needed, example:
# sudo cd /secure -- meaning change directory to
/secure based on sudo rights.
NOTE: Really not sure if the above is clear, so if you have any questions, please comment and I'll reply. Thanks!
