Because, of course, the zombies are already dead -- there's no process
there, just a process ID that hasn't been released.

I got to know the root cause of the kill -9 command

ls command hangs

in nfs mounted partition 140G  135G
5.1G  97% /config where my process is looking for some files.

Is there a way to fix it?

Please let me know if you need more info on this

Thanks and Regards
