all i know is as follows if kill -9 pid doesn't work nothing else will work ( as far as i know ) rebooting is the only way I know to clear these exiting processes. .
exiting process must free all of the resources it has before
completely exited, otherwise all kinds of side effects can occur such as
memory leaks, filesystems where you can't free up space or unmount them, etc.

Thank you h@foorsa for your response.I am not able to kill these process with kill -9 also tried different options.This is coming now frequently (within two /three days) when I am going to restart my weblogic application.Any idea why it is happening?

Typical cause for unkillable process is pending IO like bad magnetic tape or NFS server went away.

Are you using solaris ?

I am using AIX and when running my weblogic application the system is getting hung.When i am trying to kill or stop the process and reboot again then it is showing that the port is used by another process.After finding the process id for the port ,I found the process id is in exiting state and not able to kill those process anyway.Only after rebooting the issue has been resolved.I need help on why the application is getting hung and also if there is any way to kill the process of exiting state
