"ps" command or what is your exact problem?

Re: how to find the dead processes

Thank you.I use 'ps aux' to find the dead process,and the 'S' column of the output indicates the status of the process,but I can not find which letter indicates the 'dead' status.Could you tell me?

Re: how to find the dead processes

what means "dead"? If process is within a system routine it is most likely in uninterruptable mode.
