Over the course of the last two movies we've been looking at how we can view and…monitor the different processes that are running in Unix.…In this movie I want us to see how we can stop processes.…Now, the number one best way to stop a process is with Ctrl+C. That assumes that…you're running the process inside your Terminal window. You started it.…It's just taking too long or maybe you changed your mind in the middle of it.…Ctrl+C tells Unix, hey!…Stop that process, interrupt it, let's go back to the command line.…So that's the best thing, but sometimes we can't use that.…Sometimes there are processes that are running in the background, or maybe…there's a process that we did have control of but somehow we've lost control.…
So we can still see it, we can see it's running there, and we really wish it would go away.…Well, to do that, we use the kill command.…In order to show you how we would do it, let's do ps aux. We see a listing…there and you will see I have a listing on here for s000 bash.…
