    We have a server that the procesess just keep increasing on. It seems we have to reboot it everyday, just to reset the process count. The number of defunct processes can be seen as high as 1800. The problem seems to be that there are so many processes, that any new process will never get to run. In order to reboot the server, you must bypass going through init, or else the shutdown processes just pile up at the bottom and become defunct. The server load remains reasonable through-out all of this, I would say it never goes over 2.00. The processes are usually httpd, mysqld, CROND, cppop and other CPanel processes. I would guess anywhere from 70 to 200 of each. The server is running Redhat 7.3 on a P4 1.6Ghz with 512MB of RAM. Has anyone had this happen before? What did you do to solve it? This is starting to annoy both us, and our clients.

    This might be off topic.. but how many clients/domains do you have on that server?
