    DESCRIPTION

           The  tkill  tool  terminates the LAM session started by hboot(1) on the
           local node.  tkill makes use of a kill file created by the LAM  kernel,
           which  contains  the  process identifiers of every LAM process in ASCII
           format.  A SIGHUP (see signal(3))  signal  is  sent  to  every  process
           listed  in  the kill file.  tkill waits a short period of time for each
           process to die.  By adding the debug option, the user can see the final
           disposition  of  each process.  The mission is accomplished if all pro-
           cesses end up dead.
    
           In LAM, the first process to be killed is always the kernel.  When  the
           kernel receives its termination signal, it propagates the signal to all
           of its constituent processes.  Therefore, tkill will ordinarily be rac-
           ing  the  kernel to kill all other processes.  This redundant aspect of
           tkill allows it to be used as a general  purpose  tool  in  association
           with hboot(1).
    
    
    

    FILES

           /tmp/lam-$USER@<hostname>     the  kill  file,  created  by the kernel,
                                         where $USER is the userid, and <hostname>
                                         is the name of the local machine
