Note: Your process must have the PowerMangement capability to send a SIGKILL signal to another process.
SIGTERM is a request for termination. The receiving process can choose to shutdown gracefully or ignore the request. The following example code demonstrates how you can handle a SIGTERM signal and shutdown a process:
