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



NAME
       killall5 -- send a signal to all processes.

SYNOPSIS
       killall5 -signalnumber

DESCRIPTION
       killall5  is the SystemV killall command. It sends a signal to all pro-
       cesses 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.

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), reboot(8)
