I believe in Linux, each THREAD gets a separate Process ID, even though it is not actually a separate process. So if, for instance, you do a ps command in Linux, you will see a separate listing for each thread. OTOH, in Solaris, where each thread DOES NOT get a separate Process ID, a ps command will only show a single entry.

Hope this helps,

Frank
