This session starts with a comparison between the fork() and the vfork() system call. We will discuss how the newer versions of fork() use the copy on write semantics. The concept of zombie and orphan processes are discussed. Then we will discuss different system calls that are used for monitoring the status of child processes like wait(), waitpid(), waitid(), wait3(), and wait4()
