Hi

I want to kill the process of Splunk.
May be performed by specifying the "PID" with this command ?

kill -9 <PID>

There is no problem?

You can kill all processes on 'splunkd' with

kill `ps -ef | grep splunkd | egrep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'`

But, just like @esix_splunk mentioned, make sure you restart Splunk with the correct user and that, using Splunk's native commands to Start/Stop/Restart the service is much cleaner.

@kobayashikenji I am bit curious to know about the purpose of force-stopping Splunk. 🙂

This works, make sure when you restart Splunk, you are using the correct user.

But why not do '/opt/splunk/splunk stop' or 'service splunk stop'
