Subjectwhat are these processes?
From
Date

A dumb question....

PID TTY STAT TIME COMMAND
2 ? SW 0:30 (kflushd)
3 ? SW 0:00 (kpiod)
4 ? SW 0:19 (kswapd)
13 ? S 0:05 update

what are these processes and what do they do ?

kpiod looks new... I didn't remember it in 2.1 kernels

Please don't tell me to read the source code, I wouldn't have asked if
I could understand it :-)

Pf
