FOr Example I have 10 process httpd & 5 process nginx.

I want to grep the PId's of strings httpd , nginx & kill them
arnoldCommented:
ps aux | egrep '(nginx|httpd)' | awk ' {print $2 } ' | while read a; do
echo "terminating $a"
kill -TERM $a
done

any more specific? usually, stopping the respective services might be a more straight forward approach.  Note this is not a fix in any sense of the word if the attempt is to terminate process because the system becomes slugish.

You can also use something like this:
for pid in `pgrep -x "(httpd|nginx)"`; do
  echo "About to kill process $pid"
  pkill $pid
done

Open in new window


if you do not care about printing pids to console or file, you can use
pkill -x "(httpd|nginx)"

Open in new window
