GWAVA 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x Running on Linux


After running the 'rcgwavaman stop' command and then 'rcgwavaman status' to see if everything shut down, there is a module that is still running. How can I kill this?


To kill a module that won't shut down, you need to kill the PID. Do the following:

1) Find out the PID for the module by typing: ps ax | grep gwava

gwava106:~ # ps ax | grep gwava
20987 ?        Ss     0:00 /opt/beginfinite/gwava/assets/bin/linux/x32/gwvrelay none
21031 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep gwava

In this example the PID is 20987.

2) Kill the PID by typing: kill -9 PID. So for the example above you would type: kill -9 20987
If you need to kill more then one PID at a time you can put a space in between each one: kill -9 pid pid pid pid

When you run 'rcgwavaman status' now it should show that this module is not running.
