As the title suggests, what happens when
pid_max (32bit standard is 32768) is reached with many zombie-processes?
On our server a user generates a lot of
suphp defunct zombie processes and this forces our server to restart... and I think this happens because the
pid_max is reached...
I'm running CentOS 5.8 with Apache 2.2.3
Thanks. Best regards, John.
EDIT Thanks for the answers.
