Process and job control
The pkill command, which is an abbreviation for the Linux "hit squad," understands the same options as pgrep, and is run against processes by specifying a signal in the same way as kill:
pkill -19 ssh
Another practical aspect is that system administrators can target another user's processes by setting the -u flag (see Listing 4). To do so, root simply passes in the username as an option.
01 # pgrep -lfu petrosilie 02 7682 sleep 4000000000 03 7792 bash 04 [...] 05 # pkill -19 -u petrosilie
