    kill -9 doesn't work

    Pinela
      Hi,

      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 10.2.0.4 with EBS 11.5.10.2 on ASM.

      Best Regards.
