Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureTo Stop Child Processes

After issuing stop-cal, it is possible that some child processes were not stopped. For example, stop-cal might stop the cshttpd parent process but not any cshttpd child processes. In this situation, you must stop the remaining Calendar Server processes individually, using the following procedure:

  1. Log in as a user who has administrative rights to the system where Calendar Server is running.

  2. Determine the process ID (PID) of the remaining Calendar Server processes by entering a ps command for each service:

    ps -elf | grep cs-process

    where cs-process is enpd, csnotifyd, csdwpd, csadmind, or cshttpd. For example:

    ps -elf | grep cshttpd

  3. Using the PID of each process that is still running, enter a kill -15 command to kill the process. For example: kill -15 9875

  4. Enter each ps command again to make sure that all Calendar Server processes are stopped.

    If a Calendar Server process is still running, 
       enter a kill -9 command to kill it. 
    For example: kill -9 9875

    Note –

    On Linux systems with Calendar Server running, if you search for calendar processes using the ps command, the results might appear confusing. In Linux, the ps command returns the list of threads running rather than the list of processes. There is no known workaround to display only the processes.
