Unable to backfill a summary index

Path Finder

Hi,

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 fillsummaryindex 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 fillsummaryindex" 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.

Anyone know the best solution here?

My own error, terminated the previous search from the command line therefore splunk didn't recognise it had ended. Deleted the lock file.
