    Thanks Rick, according to that article one db2ckpw process exist per instance but I am seeing twice as many of these processes for each instance!!! Our server is a mix of both v7 and v8 instances thus databases.

    Check if any of these processes were started before you last db2start ...
    May be, they are just hanging around ...

    Always assume that DB2 knows what it is doing. It's best to limit your inspection of its threads and/or processes to "idle curiosity only." A thread/process that is just hanging around waiting for something to do is ... just a process-table entry, nothing more. No harm, no foul.
