New "process" on AIX called "wait"


I think I'm seeing something new on the processes screen for AIX hosts.  There is a new line item called "wait", which is not really a process.  I'm thinking it has to do with CPU wait for an LPAR based on the business and entitlements in it's AIX frame.  


Can I get a confirmation as to what this "wait" process is that is reported on AIX LPARs?


Thanks in advance.


Not 100% sure about this, but cpu % consumption of "wait" process(es) +/- corresponds to Idle consumption in CPU Usage screen. So it seems that "wait" process cpu consumption in Consuming processes screen is improperly identified as part of real CPU usage.
