Manage processes: Linux: Shells and Processes

Often you have a process that we need to terminate by process ID number. For this task you can use the kill command. Kill sends the process a signal telling it to end itself. If that doesn't work you can send it a different signal that forcibly removes the process. You can also kill all processes with a certain name or even all processes that were started by a certain user.
