Zombies everywhere - openvassd zombies

gvm-10

#1

I’m seeing quite a lot of zombie scan processes:

# ps auxwww|fgrep "openvassd" | fgrep -c -v defunct
82
# ps auxwww|fgrep "openvassd" | fgrep -c defunct
5

Is there an easy way of finding out what kind of scan operation causes these zombie processes?
