why did you duplicate a thread? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ds-4175542265/

Obviously you need to tell something about that pid, otherwise noone will be able to give you any hint.

Pid can be any process pid. I found the solution.
lsof command was taking too long because of /mnt/ drive was down. But i want to know how to debug this scenario.
