On my rooted Android, I have a screenshot from Termux after running sudo htop. There is a logcat process running with PID 925. I want to stop this process.

So far, I've tried running su -c kill 925 which is the Process ID of the logcat process I'm trying to stop but have been unsuccessful.

How to stop this process?

I managed to stop the logcat service and kill the process by issuing the following command:

sudo setprop logd.logpersistd stop && sudo kill 925
  • Hello. How did you figure out about logd.logpersistd property? Knowing the answer is good. Knowing "the way" that lead to the answer is even better.

  • "How did you figure out about logd.logpersistd" It's not supposed to be a secret but what I did was ask the question somewhere else. May 12, 2023 at 21:09
  • Then you should have attributed the answer to whomever provided this answer to you elsewhere. This answer is written as if you came up with the solution originally.
