Issue - pipe_w


HI there,

I am new to this forums and to Linux env so plz bare with my basic question.

Yesterday we faced unresponsive Linux server. when i saw the number of processes running i could see lot of processes running with "pipe_w" as one of the parameter.

I searched in google to find what exactly pipe_w means but with no luck, i though i will post a question.

If any one can give me some guidence that would be very much appreciated.

Cheers
rd

I'm not 100% sure, but it may mean that it's waiting on input from a pipe.
