I'm currently working on an application which makes heavy use of the
O.S.'s process table. This application works just fine under (SuSE)
Linux, but doesn't work flawlessly under Solaris 2.6 and later.
The problems I am experiencing are that processes seem to disappear for
a short period of time (a number of seconds) from the process table,
after which they re-appear again auto-magically...
At first I thought it was a bug in my script, but tests showed me that
this wasn't the case. What I did was to start an 'endlessly' running
program in one window. Then I looked at the process table in a second
window, and there I noticed that every now and then the running process
would just disappear from the process table for a short period of time
(even though the program was clearly running in the other window).
Is there anybody on this news group to which this 'phenomenon' sound
familiar? And is there anybody who knows a solution to this problem??
With kind regards,
