    kill -9 doesn't work


      Ocasionly we in our RHEL 4.6 environments, stumble upon a problem when some processes (namely PMON) just won't die (kill -9). Other processes, can be killed but stay <defunct>. Is there any other method, more agressive to kill a process for sure?

      running Oracle DB with EBS on ASM.

      Best Regards.
