I have AIX 3.2.5, and sometimes it appears a process <exiting> associated with a TTY. When this happens I can´t get that TTY to "getty" state... ( I can't kill the <exiting> process with the kill -9 pid)
Anyone had a problem like this ???
What can I do ?

Well... there isnt much you can do... any processes that your TTY looses contact with can be reconnected... but the OS takes care of this for you time after time and kills of them processes and reuses the memory and so on...

Is there any way to know why that <exiting> process appears ?
And why it takes hours to leave the system ?

Why the process exits is kinda hard to know. The reason dont have to be generic, there can ba thousand of reasons for a process to screw up.

There is a garbage collect system that goes around and checks for "lost" memory and other resources. This algorithm isnt always perfect, therefore "lost" resources can take hours to regain.
