    Every time I upgrade to a kernel higher than 4.17 I start getting these Zombie processes, they don't affect anything, but I'm wondering how do I find what parent process they belong to as it's obviously having issues under the newer kernels.

    Any pointers?

    ps aux | grep Z

    ps faux | less , then search for string "Z", which can give you a parent sometimes (often not).

    State "Z" is zombie. Sometimes ps shows them up. Typically it's an orphaned child were the parent died and didn't clean up.

    You can sometimes track down a stale filehandle or something with "lsof", find another process holding a lock, kill that and clean up the zombie. Sometimes not.

    It's all a bit of black magic killing zombies. They should never happen, so when they do it's a bit of a shit to clean up manually. Rebooting fixes it, but rebooting sucks.

    You're awesome Elvis, thanks mate I'll give this a go. Furthermore, you're totally right, rebooting does fix them up, but rebooting definately sucks!

    you can do 'ps ax | grep D' as well, sometimes I find processes hang waiting on i/o but it shows as status D not Z, D is uninterruptible sleep, can't even interrupt it to stop the process so usually you have to get creative and find a way to kill it with a -9, or reboot. for example with smbd I can kill the mount point of a file that's stuck open, which will clear the stuck processes, you can find this with lsof as elvis has said, then kill that PID and you're good to go, saves a reboot.

    Code:
    kill -9 `ps -xaw -o state -o pid | grep Z | grep -v PID | awk '{print $2}'`
    one of my favorite commandlinefu finds

    Running ps aux | grep 'Z' I get the following output. When I try to find the zombie's parent using pstree I see ruby(26664).

    Does this mean anything to anyone? I assume that if I kill the parent process 26664 I kill the zombie process. However I'm not so concerned about the Zombie processes as they consume no CPU or MEM, I'd just really like to workout why I'm getting them running latter kernels.

    It looks like a shell script is trying to call a process over and over again?

    Don't kill me for using the GUI, I tend to use all the tools at my disposal. But this is interesting:

    do a ps aux -p PID of the parent run.sh to find its path and see what da fuck is it doing

    edit

    ps aux -p 26647

    "ps faux" gives you the same tree in the CLI. Processes with "Z" in the "stat" column are zombies.

    Looks to me like a shitty ruby program/script that isn't cleaning up after itself. Colour me completely unsurprised. I hate ruby.

    also

    ps auxfg gives a nice tree view from the parent PIDs

    "g" was new to me. Man page says:

    g Really all, even session leaders. This flag is obsolete and may be discontinued in a future release. It is normally implied by the a flag,
    and is only useful when operating in the sunos4 personality.

    Not really. Zombies are, as the name suggests, dead but not. That output doesn't help, because it doesn't have a path or any useful stuff going on. As expected from a zombie.

    Use the "f" in "ps faux" to find the parent by going back up the tree. Generally killing the parent will make the zombies vanish (sometimes, depending on how they forked in the first place).

    I thought you might say that, as that listing makes absouotely no logical sense to me. I'll give your suggestion a shot tomorrow Elvis, as I really want to learn from this and I'm getting tired now.

    Thank you everyone for being so insightful.

    I figured as much. :)

    I've got half a dozen commands I type rote these days, with plenty of flags that are deprecated. Hell, try getting me to use BASH's "new" $(command) notation instead of `command`. Still can't break that habit.

    You may not need to reboot to clear zombie processes, as root, a "wait <PID>" will usually reap them, unless they're stuck on a device.

    I'm pretty sure I've tracked down the parent process causing all the issues, it's the VPN software provided by PIA. I haven't updated it since I installed 16.04 whenever it was released over three years ago. I'm at version 70 and there's version 82 available for download.

    I'll update it tomorrow and see how I go with all the zombie processes.
