I have been working in different screen sessions in past projects , hence have a few screen sessions accumulated. Now i have been asked to remove excess/unrequired screen sessions from the unix box.
one of the method that came to my mind is to delete the folder where screens are kept in the /tmp/mylogin/screen-r/... folder , but am not sure iff that would leave any unintentional process or something passive on the server
any idea how can i remove them without leaving any unknown dangling things around in the server ?
also i wanted to ask do these detached screens occupy quite a bit of resource , enough to alert the sys admin ie any issue with having a few unused/detached screen sessions around ?
PS : none of them are dead sessions , status is detached not dead. the OS is solaris
