(Doc ID 1610813.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Customer have a question about the lwp's that have no "execution time", in column "LTIME"
for example:

Why do these lwp's have no "execution time", is there is a reason why these lwp's still exist?
Over the time the total number of lwp's increases on the server.

Customer says the number of lwp's tend to grow over time, but it is difficult to say because when you close a process the number of lwp's is reducing.
