Kill Processes by User
To kill all processes that run under a certain user, perform the following steps:
- Select the user from the Kill all processes by user menu.
- Click Kill user's processes.
Killing a process forcefully closes the daemon. This may be necessary if, for example, the process consumes too many resources or attackers have exploited the process.
Kill the process
To trace a process, click the kill link that corresponds to the process that you wish to kill.
Trace the process
Tracing a process allows you to observe and control the process as it executes. You may trace a process from the WHM interface.
To trace a process, click the trace link that corresponds to the process that you wish to trace.
