Clarification in Process Termination

Beitrag von »


The slide set 02-process and threads mentions in slide 20 that "Some operating systems do not allow child to continue if its parent terminates (zombie control)"

Is this really zombie control ? I think this is more orphan control.

Zombies are the processes whose parent has not collected the exit state. The parent may be alive in which case, it may be overloaded or wrongly coded. Orphans are processes who parents have exited/completed without waiting.

Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.
