Environment

Release : 12.3.x, 21.x

OS: Linux/UNIX

Cause

Environmental issue

Resolution

Troubleshooting steps:

-Ask the system administrator for any error message in the system logs and see what could be the reason why the process is being killed. UNIX Agent will only execute what's in its Process tab(script) but not kill the process.

-Does the issue occur if the same shell script is executed directly from the command line ?

-Check if there's any network/process scanner that may stop any processes.
