thank for those great replies.

i do understand it is a virtual mem space .  pointers to actual
processes in a crude sense.  however recently we had a system non
responsiveness issue and folks seem to point their fingers at the high
/proc space (2.7T).  I will look into the connection/response issue

One last question:

Rebooting a system would clean up /proc.  Would this have any effect
on system performance.  I don't think so but would like some
