multiple sessions

Hi Experts,
i have got many users logging in on my server and working with different applications remotely. Almost all of them disconnect and do not log off, resulting in many processes left hanging in the system. when i do a who -u i can see many sessions with same user id that are 2-3 days old and still there. how can i terminate these sessions without harming the current session of same user? plz help

Re: multiple sessions

You should create a script that runs via cron that uses the "w" command to identify who is IDLE by a certain amount of time and kill the process.

Some samples here:

Re: multiple sessions

Thanks for the reply Ivan, but i am totally new to Linux, and this cron and scripting is French to me. Thats why i wanted a simple command in which i can do something like kill user56 /pts4.....
anyhow thanks again
