check_procs cannot detect <defunct> processes


#1

Hi,

I 'am running the latest off. nagios plugins

[root@svgmarlic01 log]# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_procs -V check_procs v1.4.14 (nagios-plugins 1.4.14)

[root@svgmarlic01 lam]# ps -fe | grep defunct flexlm 2345 2340 0 00:46 ? 00:00:00 [osp] <defunct> flexlm 2346 2340 0 00:46 ? 00:00:00 [IKON] <defunct> [root@svgmarlic01 lam]#

For some reason the plugin doesn’t detect the zombie process

root@svgmarlic01 log]# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_procs -w 1 -c 2 -s Z PROCS OK: 0 processes with STATE = Z

Is there a bug here ?
