How can I kill all processes from a certain user ?

ps -ax | grep <username>

ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep sandipan
  • ps displays the process table.
  • efww is a group of options which affect how the process table is displayed. Read about them in the man page.
  • | causes the standard output stream of ps to be piped into the following command’s standard input stream
  • grep selects lines from the input stream which match a regular expression and prints them.
