[mountpoint] <defunct> in process listing

    • OMV 4.x
    • [mountpoint] <defunct> in process listing

      I am seeing these:

      Source Code

      1. root 31958 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      2. root 31959 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      3. root 31960 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      4. root 31961 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      5. root 31962 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      6. root 31963 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      7. root 31964 1272 0 19:46 ? 00:00:00 [mountpoint] <defunct>
      pid 1272 is: /usr/bin/monit -c /etc/monit/monitrc

      which seems to point to this monit file:
      /etc/monit/conf.d/openmediavault-filesystem.conf

      Any ideas why this is happening and how to resolve?
    • I have this exact issue. I logged in via ssh and saw 23 zombie processes.

      After running ps aux | grep Z, I found that I had a list like the first post in here.


      edit: nevermind. Per another post I found

      "And since these zombies die pretty fast (look at your timestamps) it's just the result of monit calling '/bin/mountpoint' to get a clue which mountpoints or directories below /srv or /media belong to which block device (to graph disk utilization or whatever). They come and go most probably every minute or even seconds and are harmless"
