After short investigation, I have implemented solution below. Seems its working (as usually no warranty at all). #!/bin/bash

# Before call the routine which possible can hung lets run the killer.sh
# specifying time out 30 sec and our process pid $$
/usr/bin/nohup ./killer.sh $$ 30 1>/dev/null 2>&1 &
# Lets run the routine which can hang

./my_possible_hanhing_script.sh

killer.sh
#!/bin/bash

# Check if $1 process finished within timeout then exit else got to
killing

# Killing

v_pforkill_tmp=`pstree -p $1`
v_pforkill=`echo $v_pforkill_tmp |
awk -F"-" '{NF>0;for (i=1;i<=NF;i++) print $i}' | awk -F")" '{print $1}' |

grep -v killer.sh |
grep -v pstree |
sort -u |

awk -F"(" '{print $2}' |
awk '{ORS=" "; print $1 }'`

kill -9 $v_pforkill

processes. What is the best way?

Thank you all who pointed me on pkill/pgrep. One little inconvenience, which these cant handle: it is subcalls. Lets say my script calling other script and so on. For example I have process hierarchy like below |-sshd,754)

      |-sshd,25317) 
          `-bash,25547) 
              `-su,25597) - cacti 
                  `-bash,25598) 
                      |-pstree,28688) -ap 
                      `-sh,28946) ./cron_test.sh 
                          `-sleep,27900) 20

I would like to kill all those processes. If I run pkill P 754, just two processes going to be killed (754, 25317).

Is there better chance to kill them, except I have posted?

What is the best way?

Hi ALL,
Looks like off topic, but it can be useful for Oracle administration purposes on Linux (Unix) platform.

I have need to kill one of my shell scripts in case of timeout is off. Not just single process but all that is relative to it.

After searching thought net I have wrote my routine. Looks like there is place for improvement. Can somebody recommend one, or somebody has more elegant way how to achieve the goal.

#!/bin/bash
# there $1 is pid of the process

v_pforkill=`pstree -p $1 |
awk -F"-" '{NF>0;for (i=1;i<=NF;i++) print $i}' | sort -u |
awk -F"(" '{print $2}' |
awk -F")" '{print $1}' |
sort -u |
awk '{ORS=" "; print $1 }'`
kill -9 $v_pforkill

With all my respects,
Jurijs
