Overview

This interface displays your server’s active processes, and allows you to trace and kill any processes.

Displayed columns

  • Pid — The process ID. The system automatically assigns a unique number to active processes on your server.
  • Owner — The user or system account that started and owns the process.
  • Priority — A number between -20 and 19 that describes the order in which the system will execute the process. A process with a priority value of -20 will run before a process with a priority value of 19.
  • CPU% — The percentage of your server’s processing power that the process uses.
  • Memory% — The percentage of you server’s RAM (memory) that the process uses.
  • Command — The directory from which the CPU receives instructions.

Kill processes by user

To kill all of processes that run under a certain user, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the user from the Kill all processes by user menu.
  2. Click Kill user’s processes.

If you kill a process, it forcefully closes the daemon. This is necessary if, for example, the process consumes too many resources or attackers have exploited the process.

Kill the process

To kill a process, click the kill link that corresponds to the process.

Trace the process

To trace a process, click the Trace link that corresponds to the process. If you trace a process, you can observe and control the process as it executes.
