 killsm(1M)                                                       killsm(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      killsm - kill the sendmail daemon

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      killsm reads the pid file to get the pid number of the currently
      running sendmail daemon, and then kills that daemon. The pid file is
      specified using the PidFile option in the /etc/mail/sendmail.cf file.
      If this option is not set, sendmail uses /etc/mail/sendmail.pid file
      as the default pid file.

      If the sendmail daemon is not killed instantaneously, killsm will not
      exit until the sendmail daemon is terminated or after a time interval
      of 10 seconds.

      The ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop'' command does the same thing as
      killsm.  HP recommends that system administrators use
      ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail start'' and ``/sbin/init.d/sendmail stop'' to
      start and stop sendmail; these startup scripts are used when the
      system is booting to start sendmail.  Advanced system administrators
      can put /usr/sbin into their search path and just reference ``sendmail
      -bd -q30m'' to start sendmail, and killsm to stop it.
