    I can't get rid of the zombies. I restart chkservd and they all but 1 go away. Then in about a few hours they start adding up again.

    mt log is like this.

    Load service,
    Load service, apache
    Load service, exim
    Load service, mysql
    Load service, proftpd
    Load service, cppop
    Load service, bind
    Load service, interchange
    Load service, interchange
    Load service, interchange
    Load service, interchange

    Yea- what exactly IS the zombie process- are they http spawns going zombie? checkservd going zombie?

    What exactly ARE the zombie processes prior processes of?
    That would help decipher this...

    every 8 minutes I get another one. I finally had to kill chkservd.

    I wonder if it is interchange? I disabled it long time ago and I may have enabled it in the service manager and then disabled it. All my services are up so that isn't the rpoblem. Any clues to what this could be?

    well I ran sysup and I notice this about interchange:

    1:chkservd error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/chkserv.d/interchange: cpio: rename failed - Operation not permitted


    I restart and get a zombie again ..and again and again.

    Nick ?? you out there? I am stumped.

    OK..like an idiot I fixed the SOB.

    When all else fails just delete half the damn server and run susup and nick wil lrebuild your box for you. But now I have question...my chkservd log looks like this now.

    [Fri Mar 29 17:59:00 2002] Service check ....apache [+]...exim [+]...mysql [+]...proftpd [+]...syslogd [+]...Done


    I got interchange off in service manager.. I see now it writes a file called interchangedisabled.

    My question is that enough stuff in my log? what about bind? cppop?

    [Fri Mar 29 17:59:00 2002] Service check ....apache [+]...exim [+]...mysql [+]...proftpd [+]...syslogd [+]...Done

    That's all I get..

    No zombies now :)
