In the below example we can see a number of active processes associated with the columbus user.

If I wanted to target the 'python' processes and filter using the start time column one can use kstart_time as an argument to ps to sort by start time, then grep for python processes and output everything in the 5th row and after.


$ ps kstart_time -fU columbus | grep 'python manage' | tail -n +5

You might then wish to consider killing any of the old processes.


$ sudo kill -9 15169
