Aborting an outstanding request can take a significant amount of time. Killing a session or a user’s sessions does not necessarily free up the resources of those sessions immediately.
Before using the KILL USER command, select the host group from which the session is running using the SELECT HOST command. For information, see “SELECT HOST” on page 664.
