How does one kill the hung agent thread in Windows install of Bamboo?

I have a hung agent. How does one tell the thread in a WIN install of Bamboo 5.0?

Install SysInternals Process Explorer on the Windows Server and find the thread in the process tree. You can kill it if you need to.

From DOS Prompt - tasklist /FI "STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING"

That is a bit overkill. Windows/MS-DOS have built-in commands for this already, primarily taskkill.

Example to kill hanging Windows Explorer:

taskkill /f /im explorer.exe

@jason-monsorno how would one find the specific agent?

Use the Windows Task Manager or tasklist like Jai suggested. taskkill can also kill a specific PID instead of all processes with that image name.

If you're referring to a local agent from inside of Bamboo, you can see the agent name from the build activity and kill it from within the admin page.
