Zombie process

Zombie process is an inactive computer process,according to wikipedia article, "...On Unix operating systems, a zombie process or defunct process is a process that has completed execution but still has an entry in the process table, allowing the process that started it to read its exit status. In the term's colorful metaphor, the child process has died but has not yet been reaped..."


Find zombie by :

# ps aux | awk '{ print $8 " " $2 }' | grep -w Z
 after that use kill -9  PID
