procctl – clear procfs event flags

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


procctl pid ...

DESCRIPTION

The procctl utility clears the procfs(5) event mask used by truss(1). This can be used in the event that a process is left stranded, since the procfs(5) events result in a non-killable process. The arguments are a list of process IDs; procctl goes through the list and clears the event masks for each specified process.
