I've been having no issues summary indexing previously, but suddenly when trying to do this (from the command line) I'm receiving the error:
"An instance of fill_summary_index is already running for app=nxtomo_jobs"
However, there is nothing in the splunk jobs which is running.
So, I checked using "ps aux | grep fill_summary_index" in the command line, and it DOES show something is running.
Therefore there is a lock file in nxtomo_jobs/log but how can I safely end whatever process is running here so I can continue to run my summary indexing backfilling? Other answers I've found say to delete the lock file, but this is in situations where nothing shows from the ps aux command.
