comment How to log off an user from SSH?
@psusi No, no, I mean swap files. This is how Vim and Vi call them. Nevertheless, in fault tolerance area, we call "gracious stop" or "gracious halt" when a system has the opportunity to execute all its cleanup routines, like the ones you enumerated for sshd.

@psusi BTW, I assumed that the OP was aware that is harmful to drop someones session, as some essential tasks may be interrupted or completely prevented from running.

Are you sure? When a I talked about the -9 I was referring to the graciously stop of the SSHD terminal process. The running apps will be injured no matter the flag used. For example, try something like killing a user session when he is editing some file in Vim or Vi. No matter what flag, or even if any flag was used, the swap file will remain on FS and the user will be noticed about it whenever he tries to edit the file again.
