PROCCTL(8) MidnightBSD System Manager’s Manual PROCCTL(8)

NAME

procctl — clear procfs event flags

SYNOPSIS

procctl pid ...

DESCRIPTION

The procctl utility clears the procfs(5) event mask used by truss(1). This can be used in the event that a process is left stranded, since the procfs(5) events result in a non-killable process. The arguments are a list of process IDs; procctl goes through the list and clears the event masks for each specified process.

SEE ALSO

truss(1), procfs(5)

HISTORY

The procctl utility was written by Sean Eric Fagan for FreeBSD.
