Nagios Zombies



Firstly: I’m using nagios 2.10 on Solaris 5.10 servers.

My problem is that I get a few zombi process on some of my servers.
It’s not much of a problem for me, but the admins don’t seem to like zombies …

Does anyone know where they come from ? and how to avoid them ?
(I know that a nagios restart stops the zombies, but I’m looking for a better idea :))

And anyway, if you have other ideas, don’t hesitate to share them :wink:

btw: when I restart nagios, it asks me the password for the account; is there a way to avoid that ?
