mysql_zap kills processes that match a pattern. It uses the ps
command and Unix signals, so it runs on Unix and Unix-like systems.
Invoke mysql_zap like this:
shell> mysql_zap [-signal] [-?Ift] pattern
A process matches if its output line from the ps command contains the
pattern. By default, mysql_zap asks for confirmation for each
process. Respond y to kill the process, or q to exit mysql_zap. For
any other response, mysql_zap does not attempt to kill the process.
If the -signal option is given, it specifies the name or number of
the signal to send to each process. Otherwise, mysql_zap tries first
with TERM (signal 15) and then with KILL (signal 9).
mysql_zap supports the following additional options:
· --help, -?, -I
Display a help message and exit.
Force mode. mysql_zap attempts to kill each process without
Test mode. Display information about each process but do not kill
