You mean that fifo ps returns a low number of processes? How are you
starting up opensips? What kind of scripts / process management are
you using?

I would guess that something you use to start up opensips is not
working as you expect and keeps respawning it all the time. Of course
new processes won't stay around for long because they'll try to bind
on some ports which are already taken. But if you're respawning often
enough, the total count could go into thousands.
