FLOG(1)                                                                FLOG(1)

       flog -- speed up a process

       flog [-l n] [-a m] [-u] process-id

       Flog  is  used to stimulate an improvement in the performance of a pro-
       cess that is already in execution.  The process-id is the process  num-
       ber of the process that is to be disciplined.

       The value n of the -l flag is the flagellation constant, i.e., the num-
       ber of lashes to be administered per minute.  If this argument is omit-
       ted, the default is 17, which is the most random random number.

       The  value  m  of  the -a flag is the number of times the inducement to
       speed up is to be administered.   If  this  argument  is  omitted,  the
       default  is  one, which is based on the possibility that after that the
       process will rectify its behavior of its own volition.

       The presence of the -u flag indicates that flog is to be unmerciful  in
       its  actions.   This nullifies the effects of the other keyletter argu-
       ments.  It is recommended that this option be used  only  on  extremely
       stubborn processes, as its over-use may have detrimental effects.

       Flog  will  read the file /have/mercy for any entry containing the pro-
       cess-id of the process being speeded-up.  The file can contain whatever
       supplications  are  deemed  necessary,  but,  of  course, these will be
       ignored if the -u flag is supplied.

       Stimulation, CACM , vol. 4, 1657, pp. 356-654.

       If  a  named  process  does not exist, flog replies ``flog you'' on the
       standard output.  If flog happens to kill(2) the process, which usually
       happens  when the -u keyletter argument is supplied, it writes ``RIP,''
       followed by the process-id of the deceased, on the standard output.

       Spurious supplications for mercy by the process being flogged sometimes
       wind up on the standard output, rather than in /shut/up.
