Ghost Jobs

Recently my backups started failing. If I open xsibackup pro and select "Watch Backup Job Activity" I see a scheduled job in there. Problem is I have no jobs setup. I don't have cron installed. I don't have anything scheduled.

I couldn't figure out why I had 2 jobs schedule so I removed my schedules, deleted my jobs, uninstalled cron.  The job was still there! I uninstalled xsibackup and reinstalled it fresh. Still if I open watch backups jobs there is a job in there. I have looked at root crontab and nothing is scheduled.

I did run jobs manually. I did have the free version before buying Pro.

So currently I have a job in xsibackup running idle. I can not find it to delete.

Any advise where to look would be appreciated.

Re: Ghost Jobs

Well, any loaded process got there somewhow, didn't it?
It's fairly simple:

1 - List running jobs with the xsi string in them

ps -c | grep xsi

2 - Kill the jobs you believe to be iddle

kill -9 jobId

Re: Ghost Jobs

I ran the following commands you suggested. I see the process ID. When I try to remove it I get "no such process" I run the grep again and it finds it again.  Any help if very much appreciated.

Under xsibackup "watch jobs" I still see an idle job.

ps -c | grep xsi
2120766  2120766  grep                            grep xsi
[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5c6d965e-06c56856-9c4e-9c8e99594c16/xsi-dir]


[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5c6d965e-06c56856-9c4e-9c8e99594c16/xsi-dir] kill -9 2120766
sh: can't kill pid 2120766: No such process
[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/5c6d965e-06c56856-9c4e-9c8e99594c16/xsi-dir]

Re: Ghost Jobs

That is the very same grep command you are running, hence the result. You have no ghost processes.
