    stopping the process which STAT is D

    Dear all,
    Based on the ps manual, I found:
    Here are the different values that the s, stat and state output specifiers (header "STAT" or "S") will display
    to describe the state of a process.
    D Uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)

    How can I stop the process which have the STAT is D.
    Thx for your help.

    "D Uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)"

    As you have described, it may not be possible to kill a process in "stat d". I have never been able to.
