Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well, the PID is the Process Identificacion, a unique number of the process in the operating system, you can identified the Parent of a process by the PPID (Parent PID) the tells you the Id number for the parent process, who started every child process. There is no categories for the process, but there is some child process that has no parent, because they are child of a process that no exist anymore.

I think there is no maximun child process.
