!!KILL Syntax


Each connection to mysqld runs in a separate thread. 
You can see which threads are running with the SHOW PROCESSLIST statement and kill a thread with the KILL thread_id statement. 

You can also use the mysqladmin processlist and mysqladmin kill commands to examine and kill threads. 

Here is an example of SHOW PROCESSLIST output:
