KILLALL5(8)                    Linux System Administrator's Manual                    KILLALL5(8)

NAME
       killall5 -- send a signal to all processes.

SYNOPSIS
       killall5 -signalnumber [-o omitpid[,omitpid..]]  [-o omitpid[,omitpid..]..]

DESCRIPTION
       killall5  is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal to all processes except kernel
       threads and the processes in its own session, so it won't kill the shell that  is  running
       the  script  it  was called from. Its primary (only) use is in the rc scripts found in the
       /etc/init.d directory.

OPTIONS
       -o omitpid
              Tells killall5 to omit processes with that process id.

NOTES
       killall5 can also be invoked as pidof, which is simply a (symbolic) link to  the  killall5
       program.

EXIT STATUS
       The  program  return  zero if it killed processes.  It return 2 if no process were killed,
       and 1 if it was unable to find any processes (/proc/ is missing).

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), reboot(8), pidof(8)
