Linux Zombie Process Count

Recommended Posts

This comes up occasionally as a customer request - can we count zombie processes on Linux servers?

Yes we can...


This DataSource relies on SSH connectivity to the server, and therefore the Linux SSH PropertySource (in core), and once connected runs command:

'ps axo pid=,stat='

...and then runs through the table counting all the occurrences of 'Z' in the stat column.
