Find Process to Kill Process

Need to find a process so you can kill it?

Find the process first, replace NAMEOFPROCESS with the name or part thereof of the process you’re trying to find:

ps -ax | grep NAMEOFPROCESS

The first column lists the process id.

Then kill the process, replacing PROCESSID with the actual number of the process:

kill PROCESSID
