HP 11iv2: Determining Blocked processes using ps

Hi,

We are seeing a blocked process in our vmstat output and are trying to track down the offending process using "ps" - there are processes in each of "R", "S" and "Z" states. There are no processes with a state of "W" - Is the zombie process showing up in the vmstat->blocked process count?

$vmstat 5 1
procs memory page faults cpu
r b w avm free re at pi po fr de sr in sy cs us sy id

$UNIX95= ps -eo "flags,state,user,pid,ppid,gid,cpu,intpri,nice,sz,vsz,tty,time,etime,args"
