script to kill long processes not working

We have the problem of a few php files that occaisionally just wont die , for whatever reason.

We have tried everything to isolate the issue, but with no success.

We came across the following perl script which we are running as a cron, but sometimes it still doesn't kill the pid's.



ps -lef | grep "nobody" | grep httpd | perl -ane '($h,$m,$s) = split /:/,$F[13]; kill + 9, $F[3] if ($m > 2);'




Our server runs on centos 5.7 "nobody" is how we define apache process users.

Bascially, the script should be killing anything that is > 2 minutes old.

Help please?

...am wondering - should it somehow be kill -9 instead?

i'm not sure what a "kill + 9," does but you should try either "kill -9" or perhaps "kill -s 9" or "kill -s SIGKILL"
(not sure what works on centos)
