Application slow down due to zombie process?

Hi All,

We are facing the application downtime / issue while uploading the file to Azure storage via Arc.
There is no specific code error, but facing timeout issue.
It gets resolved once the Azue webapp is restarted.
It has happened intermittently.

Since we are unable to find the root cause, we consulted if there is any issue on Azure side.
The Microsoft team says, the system health is fine, but pointing towards accumulated zombie processes. epmd and inet_gethost

On searching, I understand that these are created by Erlang runtime.
Please let me know, if we have some process to kill these zombie processes time to time?
Also do they really contribute for the application downtime?
