enumerate with padding
bash2 : for X in $(seq 1 5); do printf "%03g " "$X";done bash3 : for X in {1..5}; do printf "%03g " "$X";done bash4 : echo {001..5}

ps -ef | grep PROCESS | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}' | xargs kill -9

The sed command just strips off the information about how long the box has been up, and how many users are logged in.
