Functions

Kill all Zombie processes (Guaranteed!)

Terminal - Kill all Zombie processes (Guaranteed!)
kill -9 `ps -xaw -o state -o ppid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{print $2}'`

Kill all Zombie processes (Guaranteed!)

It identifies the parents of the Zombie processes and kill them. So the new parent of orphan Zombies will be the Init process and he is already waiting for reaping them. Be careful! It may also kill your useful processes just because they are not taking care and waiting for their children (bad parents!).

Alternatives

There is 1 alternative - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives
kill -9 `ps -xaw -o state -o pid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{print $2}'`

Tested on FreeBSD 8.1 and CSH. The scripts works correctly but the Zombies do not die! I hope it will run and function as expected in Linux and others.

kill -9 `ps xawo state=,pid=|sed -n 's/Z //p'`

just a leaner, smaller version. Love the original idea!

ps -xaw -o state,ppid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{ print $2 }' | xargs kill -9
2013-01-09 04:21:54
User: terrywang
Functions: awk grep kill ps xargs
-4

Did some research and found the previous command wrong, we don't kill a zombie but its parent. Just made some modifcation to khashmeshab's command.

Know a better way?

If you can do better, submit your command here.

What others think

nice.. great idea

Comment by AskApache 295 weeks and 4 days ago

the ppid version is a bit too dangerous for me though..

Comment by AskApache 295 weeks and 4 days ago

@AskApache: Try it once. You will see it is not so dangerous. It even killed one of SSHD daemons in my remote server but I'm still connected to it without any problem!

Comment by khashmeshab 295 weeks and 4 days ago

Didnt work got this error not sure what it means

http://paste2.org/p/1058232

Comment by Bonster 295 weeks and 4 days ago

@Bonster: What OS do you use? (uname -a)

Comment by khashmeshab 295 weeks and 4 days ago

On Ubuntu 11.10, I had to omit the 1st ' - ' :

kill -9 `ps -xaw -o state -o ppid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{print $2}'`

Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.7/FAQ

this works:

kill -9 `ps xaw -o state -o ppid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{print $2}'`
Comment by cyba84 234 weeks and 4 days ago

I don't think mindlessly killing parent processes just to get rid of zombies is the way to go. This one-liner is certainly correct (as opposed to the original submission) but the big picture of this problem is still way off.

"Casually ? if you are a starter with tweed then it is recommended to start with plain variety of tweed. You can wear a tweed jacket with dark blue jeans and high boots. Incorporate a neutral t-shirt or a winter shirt under the jacket.

At work ? Tweed suit in London are quite popular as one of the formal attires. Heavy woven tweeds can make you look older, so try buying tweed suits in London that are finely weaved and pair it with your regular shirts like white or blue with smart formal shoes. Believe it or not, it can win you praise at work.

Accessorise ? Apart from wearing tweed suits in London as attire you can even use accessories made out of tweed. Tweed caps, laptop bags, scarves, gloves are a smart way to incorporate tweed in your winter collection. It is also a safe way of using tweed fabric if you are not too comfortable wearing it. There is even footwear that has tweed as their centre fabric and looks awesome.

Taking care of Tweed

Though the fabric boasts itself about being tough and rugged, it still requires a good care to use it for coming years as well. Due to its weave structure it often pick up dirt and stains that can get hard to remove. Make sure you take your tweed clothes for dry cleaning as washing them in washing machines can make them shrink. Also, keep them in cool dry place so that they do not get attracted by moths.
