I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

One some OSes, this is a "parallel kill" that will use rsh to kill processes on multiple machines. On Linux and BSD, it allows selection by various criteria, including names (like "killall").
