slay : Kill all the Processes of a Selected User

slay is a command line utility used for killing all the processes used by a particular User. Some users will leave with out logingout, some kid users will use heavy games and stay it in background. slay will kill all the processes for such conditions. The main problem is , slay will not give any warning if you have unsaved documents!!! So take care and use it effectively, good tool for system administrators.

use synaptic or apt for installing slay in ubuntu / debian

$ sudo apt-get install slay

Usage

$ sudo slay varkala will kill all the processes of user varkala.

Useful, although I think it serves a different purpose in QNX - similar to killall
