Sometimes we launched Jupyter and we crash it.
It would be good to have a command line to list of Jupyter kernel running like :
jupyter listall

It can be checked by checking the name 'jupyter' in the process list and terminate it by :
jupyter terminate id / all

nbmanager is similar to what you want. It provides a GUI rather than a command line interface, but the module nbmanager.api is general purpose and could be reused to make command line UI.

There is a jupyter notebook list command for listing running notebooks. There isn't a corresponding terminate, though.

@arita37 Taken from here:

For an SSH'd terminal, we can just run:

kill $(pgrep jupyter)

To kill terminals that we can't CTRL+C.

There is also now a jupyter notebook stop command that takes a port number and shuts down the corresponding notebook server.

From 5.1, you will also be able to shut a server down if you have HTTP access to it by making a POST request to /api/shutdown.

@takluyver Is jupyter notebook stop available in 5.0.0? I get a No such file or directory error:

$ jupyter notebook --version
$ jupyter notebook stop 8888
[C 10:02:38.220 NotebookApp] No such file or directory: /Users/jjpr/stop

Oops, sorry. It's new in 5.1, added by #2388.
