Stopping a Linux Process
- Select the job to stop from the Vectorize/Render Queue window and click Delete.
- As the root user, open a Linux shell and type:
The shell window displays all the processes that are active at the moment.
- Find the listing for the vectorizing or rendering process that you started. There are two ID flags to look for:
- If you started a vectorizing process, look for the process that lists the word Pix2vec -file fileLocation.
- If you started a rendering process, look for the process that lists the word Stage -job jobName -scene sceneName -version versionNumber.
- Take note of the system number that identifies the process. In the example above, the system numbers appear in the box on the left.
- Type the following command and replace <id number> with the system number you noted in the previous step:
kill -9 <id number>
For example, if your process number is 5348 or 5353 (as in the example above), you would type the following command to stop the process:
- kill -9 5353: Stops the vectorize process.
- kill -9 5348: Stops the rendering process.
- Press Enter/Return.
