fastrpc run-away processes

Written by Peter Davies on .

Just spotted an oddity with webmin/virtualmin...
We had a server with several thousand running /usr/share/webmin/fastrpc.cgi processess.

With no easy way to kill them the best solution was to:

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

This removed all processes that had the word fastrpc in the title. A quick check with:

ps -aef | grep fastrpc

Revealed no running processes - system back to normal.
