I got a two processes during the network drive failure.

1 D     0  1199     1  0  80   0 - 19101 wait_o pts/21   00:00:01 rsync
1 Z     0  1226  1199  0  80   0 -     0 exit   pts/21   00:00:00 rsync <defunct>

How to kill them?

thanks Arman

    Rebooting doesn't get rid of the zombie process? Or you mean how you're running/killing the process in the first place is the problem? May 25 '11 at 14:26
  • @Arman: the post says the only way is rebooting, and so it is. Like @Bart says, it's hard to imagine that rebooting might not fix your problem, unless your problem is that this is a recurrent issue maybe?

    zombie is dead -- you can't kill something dead. The parent should collect it. If it don't, kill the parent.

Send a SIGCHILD signal to the parent process and if that doesn't work kill the parent.
