Kill sessions in Unix - Linux while shutting down the database

When you shutdown the database with the immediate option you have to wait for all processes to terminate. Shutting down a database with 5000 sessions maybe will take some time!

If the database SID for example is DWH01 then you can execute in the Unix shell this command to kill all the oracle sessions to speed up the procedure. 

$ ps -ef|grep 'oracleDWH01 (LOCAL=NO)'|grep -v grep|awk '{print$2}'|xargs -i kill {}


for i in `ps -ef|grep oracleDWH01|grep -v grep|awk '{print$2}'`


kill -9 $i

 It doesn't kill the smon and pmon processes, only the LOCAL=NO
