I setup my eos environment following this quickstart tutorial.

Since I didn't build from source and did not use the docker-compose, how do I stop keosd?

  • It doesn't work for me: damianjnc@Damian-PC:~$ pgrep keosd damianjnc@Damian-PC:~$ pkill keosd damianjnc@Damian-PC:~$ cleos wallet list Wallets: [ "damian", "damian2 *", "default", "filip2" ] damianjnc@Damian-PC:~$

  • you need to know the pid of keosd port that you can get by using : netstat -nltp after enter you find keosd runing on certain port after that just use : kill -9 pid of keosd Sep 21, 2018 at 7:50

Your question is not clear. If you want to stop the node, simply remove the container using

docker rm -f eosio



If you want to keep everything but just kill keosd.

First check whats running using pgrep keosd then kill the keosd process using pkill keosd:

# pgrep keosd
  23     // No guarantee that you'll have same #. :)
# pkill keosd
