I have a running capture in wireshark (mojave os). I clicked on stop capture but it keeps capturing packets, the number of packets keep increasing. I have turned off the wireless and the data capture continues. I cannot save the file. Could be a RAM lag. How can one stop the ongoing capture from the command line?

That's a bug. Please report it at the Wireshark Bugzilla, so we can try to determine the cause and fix it.

dumpcap is the capture process.

To kill it on Macos, use killall dumpcap.
