Text area: "Process Center - Monitor and Stop Processes" Process Center ============== The script monitor.cgi will list all fantomas shadowMaker(TM) processes currently running on the server system. The table "Process list" displays the following data: 1. Script The running script's name. 2. PID Short for "process identifier", a unique numeric tag assigned by the Linux operating system to each running process. 3. Value Depending on the script displayed, this column will list the respective values for the script(s) currently being processed. - Value for script "geturls.cgi": the KEYWORD currently being processed during the search engine query. - Value for script "getcontent.cgi": the URL currently being spidered. As a rule, every active script will spawn multiple child processes. Hence, the script name may be listed several times in the table. Only one of these child processes will handle a single value at any given time. Thus it is not unusual for the script name to be displayed multiple times, whereas only one value is listed for one of these instances, with the other child processes displaying blank values. Clicking on the button "Reload" will refresh the list of current processes. Button: "Kill process(es)" Killing Processes ----------------- To kill one or several processes, select the corresponding checkbox(es) and hit button "Kill process(es)". When killing processes, it is recommended to select ALL checkboxes assigned to a given script name. This way, you can kill the child processes in tandem with their respective parent process. Note that this procedure may require repeating if a fresh child process happens to have been triggered in the meantime (i. e. since the last display refresh). For security reasons, only processes displaying a PID will be killed.
