Multiple instances of udev daemon?
 
Hi,

Is it normal to have multiple instances of udev daemon running?

user@gibbs:~/data/icp-ms/Routine/2011/Agilent7500$ ps aux | grep udev
root 381 0.0 0.0 21424 848 ? Ss May05 0:00 udevd --
daemon
root 7189 0.0 0.0 21420 472 ? S May05 0:00 udevd --
daemon
root 7190 0.0 0.0 21420 472 ? S May05 0:00 udevd --
daemon

Only three? That sounds reasonable, at least to me. Maybe the daemon is
started by default with a predefined number of instances :-?

In lenny I only have one running, though:

sm01@stt008:~$ ps aux | grep udev
root 1085 0.0 0.0 18296 2424 ? S<s 07:43 0:00 udevd --daemon
sm01 7192 0.0 0.0 7240 828 pts/0 R+ 17:37 0:00 grep udev

Greetings,

pstree can help. "pstree | grep udev" says:

udevd---2*[udevd]

I.e. udev forked two children.

It looks like normal (if new) behaviour.

I don't know if it is "normal". But on my system, I have three instances
of udev daemon as well.

Cheers,

I was going to ask this same question myself. In Lenny I had only one,
in Squeeze I have 3.


Camaleón I'm surprised you haven't upgraded yet.

I was curious about this, so I asked the maintainer. It is intentional,
similar to apache preforked.
