I've noticed this situation several times (but I'm not sure if it is always the same command).
I don't even know how to describe the lead-up to this situation, unless it is because of a detached script I've been testing which hasn't terminated properly...
The best I can do is present this image of
htop (Tree view)... I've only shown the first few. There is a total of 63 subordinate entries (plus the 1 parent)... and t hey just sit there!
I'd like to know what is going on?... and is the "64" some kind of limit?
Whatever the case, it just seems bizzare to have 64 threads/processes "running"
I've just rebooted the system, and this time, the first thing I did was to check
console-kit-daemon shows 63 threads... so It looks like this may be a normal situation... It still seems a bit strange to me... Does anyone know why there are so many threads for console-kit-daemon ?
