Kill Processes by User
To kill all of 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.
If you kill a process, it forcefully closes the daemon. This is necessary if, for example, the process consumes too many resources or attackers have exploited the process.
