Kill Processes

Use the Kill Processes API to kill a specific process or multiple processes on the server. The API call will execute kill -9 PID on the server to kill the process using the process ID. This process ID can obtained by the List Processes API. After killing the process, the currently running processes are returned by the API. You kill processes on both master as well as slave server.
