Linux: Kill multiple processes with one single command

To simplify:

killall -r "ora_.*_oraxpo"

From the killall man page:

-r, --regexp Interpret process name pattern as an extended regular expres‐ sion.

Very nice. Apparently a lot of people don't even know this exists.

Not really much else of interest to me (the hardware slowly improves - it would be curious to see year over year).
