Console-kit daemon spawns more than 60 child-processes


Hi there,

I'm running Slackware64 13.37. I noticed that the 'console-kit-dae' process spawns a bunch of 'console-kit-da' sub-processes. Is this normal, or a bug? (pstree output attached).

Actually, those are threads.

I've got 64 of them on my machine.

Thanks, I didn't quite know what a thread is. :-)

From Wikipedia:
Quote:
In computer science, a thread of execution is the smallest unit of processing that can be scheduled by an operating system. The implementation of threads and processes differs from one operating system to another, but in most cases, a thread is contained inside a process. Multiple threads can exist within the same process and share resources such as memory, while different processes do not share these resources.
