Kill Linux process that consumes all memory

Found on SatckOverFlow. I love it :

ps -eo pid --no-headers --sort=-%mem | head -1 | xargs kill -9 With: ps -eo pid --no-headers --sort=-%mem: display the process ids of all running processes, sorted by memory usagehead -1: only keep the first line (process using the most memory)xargs kill -9: kill the process
