I tried to update OnyX, and it froze trying to download the update. I force quit it to try and resolve the issue. Fine, I expected the partial download to stop at the same time I quit OnyX. But, I find unexpected network activity, and the file is still increasing in size. The file is apparently still downloading, best guess is OnyX made a call to cURL or something. How do I tell whatever process is downloading the file to STOP?! UPDATE: I couldn't figure it out, so I just shutdown the machine to kill whatever processes were running. Still, I'd like to know exactly what to do if a called process is still doing something after the application that called it froze, requiring a force quit. I'm still fairly sure OnyX called cURL to download the update, and a shutdown seems a bit of an extreme resolution. Activity Monitor said cURL was executed by 'root' so I wasn't sure whether terminating it was safe to do.
