How to kill an open process on node.js?
I'm trying to set up a build-system for Node.js on sublime, so I can press F7 to call "node" on the openned file. The problem is that the process is then open forever, so, the second time I use F7 I get an add-in-use.
Is there a way I can kill the openned "node.exe" process from node.js?
Use the following set of commands to identify the process running on a given port and to termiate it from the command line
sudo fuser -v 5000/tcp // gives you the process running on port 5000
It will output details similar to the one shown below
USER PID ACCESS COMMAND 5000/tcp: almypal 20834 F.... node
sudo fuser -vk 5000/tcp
to terminate the process. Check once again using
sudo fuser -v 5000/tcp
to ensure that the process has terminated.
On Windows you could use the following steps
C:\> tasklist // will show the list of running process' Image Name PID Session Name Session# Mem Usage System 4 console 0 236 K ... node.exe 3592 console 0 8440 k
Note the PID corresponding to your node process, in this case 3592. Next run taskkill to terminate the process.
C:\> taskkill /F /PID 3592
Or /IM switch
C:\> taskkill /F /IM node.exe
