oracle process query !

This query is For HP-UX 11i server.
I have certain oracle process that are running on my system as below :-

rotmgr 3986 1 0 07:49:33 ? 0:00 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
rotmgr 26356 1 0 08:14:32 ? 0:00 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
oracle 21165 1 0 03:54:59 ? 0:28 ora_lgwr_edjlive
rotmgr 12097 1 0 04:26:37 ? 0:06 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
rotmgr 729 1 0 06:25:58 ? 0:00 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
oracle 21451 1 0 03:55:12 ? 0:03 ora_mmon_edjlive
rotmgr 15233 1 0 08:34:08 ? 0:01 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
rotmgr 11979 1 0 04:26:34 ? 0:02 oracleedjlive (DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))
oracle 21611 1 0 03:55:22 ? 0:00 ora_arc0_livehub
oracle 16761 1 0 Sep 11 ? 8:59 ora_smon_ASP

I am not sure if these are valid processes. Please suggest if these processes can be killed or not. Please do explain whatever the solution may be.
Thanks in advance and appreciate your time.

Processes like that are valid ones on our server. Some are part of a user process tree, others are part of the oracle server itself.

What makes you think they are bad?

In past I have contacted DBA team in regards to these process. They reverted saying grep the process such as ps -ef |grep YES and if the same process have PID 1 then those process could be killed. However, when asked the reason behind killing such process I never received a satisfactory answer. So if you could explain how and why are these processes important. Would be a great help... THank you.

These are shadow processes of local connections (from the same host). It doesn't come to my mind right now when such connection
could become init's child (while all others, LOCAL=NO, are),
but I would check from inside oracle: v$session/v$process/v$sqlarea what these session are doing and why they are in such state
(in case this is not a normal behavior).
