How to quit summary backfill script?

Builder

I was running a backfill script and it seems to have got hung up. How can I quit the script?

Will pkill -f fill_summary_index work?

I ended up using pkill fill_summary_index and deleting the lock file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/myapp/log/. Things seem to be back to normal now.
