    Hi Arix,,


    Yes, you are right. process login is seen for telnet and sshd for ssh sessions on the device.


    Coming to the processes nanslp and select, they are actually wait channels on the freebsd kernel waiting for a certain task to complete for various threads in the kernel such as read/write operations, waiting for inputs etc.


    select: waiting for an event to trigger on a file descriptor via system calls, usually a socket.

    nanslp: waiting for a specified amount of time to pass.


    You can refer to for more information on these Freebsd wait channels.


    Hope this helps.


    Thanks and Regards,
