KILLALL5(8)           Linux System Administrator's Manual          KILLALL5(8)



NAME
       killall5 -- send a signal to all processes.

SYNOPSIS
       killall5 -signalnumber [-o omitpid] [-o omitpid..]

DESCRIPTION
       killall5  is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal to all processes except kernel threads and the pro-
       cesses in its own session, so it won't kill the shell that is running the script it was called from.  Its  pri-
       mary (only) use is in the rc scripts found in the /etc/init.d directory.

OPTIONS
       -o omitpid
              Tells killall5 to omit processes with that process id.

NOTES
       killall5 can also be invoked as pidof, which is simply a (symbolic) link to the killall5 program.

EXIT STATUS
       The  program return zero if it killed processes.  It return 2 if no process were killed, and 1 if it was unable
       to find any processes (/proc/ is missing).

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), reboot(8), pidof(8)
