Why are there so many igateway processes running on my AutoSys 11.0 server running on RedHat Linux?


The igateway version that is currently bundled with AutoSys r11 for Linux is compiled against a kernel that uses an older threading model where threads show up as processes in a ps list. Due to this it is normal to see many igateway processes running in the ps output from a Linux machine. All but one of them are threads. Other O/S versions of igateway will show only one process. This will change in a future release of AutoSys when a newer version of igateway is bundled.
