Process table cleanup


hello,

if i terminate my terminal session abruptly due to any network connection failure, the next time when i see the process table, the dead procesees still appears in the list. I would wish to see all those processes which are terminated to disappear immediately. This was the case when i was using HP-UX, but doesn't seem to be the case with Red-Hat Linux. is that true?

over a time, such inactive processes list increases, and only way i could make see it disappearing is by "kill <process id>" or server reboots.

-thanks

Kindly post the output of
Code:
ps -el
when you see those dead processes.

Meanwhile see if the following link is relevant to your problem somehow ?
