I was building my own Oracle RAC 11g cluster ( with Openfiler as my shared storage. Two VM's as my rac-cluster, one VM with Openfiler as my own SAN.

On my Grid Control management-server (Suse Linux, OMS version a very large number of <defunct> processes arose what eventually caused the OMS not to respond anymore.

Looked like this:
