Mass Process Hibernation?

» close window

The Question is:

What causes many processes to go into hibernate state?

The Answer is :

  Please ensure that you have sufficient free space on the system disk
  and on the disk where security audits are written -- for one common
  cause of stuck processes, please see SET AUDIT/FAILURE_MODE.  Please
  also ensure that your system is appropriately tuned and resources are
  available, and please install and upgrade the currently-available
  OpenVMS and TCP/IP Services versions and the associated ECOs.
  Of course, some unknown local application could also easily be generating
  errant $hiber requests, and the application could be running anywhere on
  the host or within the local cluster.
  Please then contact the Compaq Customer Support Center for assistance.
