Re starting the USRP/USRP2 through terminal

Is there any method to restart the USRP/USRP2 using commands on the

For example I run benchmark programs for Tx and some times I terminate
using Ctrl+z before the they terminate by themselves after the
is over.
But when I again try to run another program I says “cant open usrp”.
Then I manually switch off the power to usrp and restart.Then only I am
to run any new program.

I was thinking if there is some terminal command to perform this task so
that I can include that in my script.

Are there any other options.:slight_smile:

why not try Ctrl+c instead of Ctrl+z ??
ctrl+z just stops the process right, whereas ctrl+c kills it.
