NAME

sockstat — list open sockets

SYNOPSIS

sockstat [−46clhu] [−p ports] [−P pid|process] [−U uid|user] [−G gid|group] [−R protocol]

DESCRIPTION

The sockstat command lists open Internet or UNIX domain sockets.

The following options are available:

−4

Show IPv4 sockets only.

−6

Show IPv6 sockets only.

−u

Also show unix sockets.

−c

Show connected sockets.

−l

Show listening sockets.

−h

Show a usage summary.

−p ports

Only show Internet sockets if either the local or foreign port number is on the specified list. The ports argument is a comma-separated list of port numbers and ranges specified as first and last port separated by a dash.

−P pid|process

Only show sockets of the specified pid|process. The pid|process argument is a process name or pid.

−U uid|user

Only show sockets of the specified uid|user. The uid|user argument is a username or uid.

−G gid|group

Only show sockets of the specified gid|group. The gid|group argument is a groupname or gid.

−R protocol

Only show sockets of the specified protocol. The protocol argument is either ’raw’, ’tcp’, ’udp’ or ’unix’

If neither −c or −l is specified, sockstat will list both listening and connected sockets.

The information listed for each socket is:

USER

The user who owns the socket.

COMMAND

The command which holds the socket.

PID

The process ID of the command which holds the socket.

FD

The file descriptor number of the socket.

PROTO

The transport protocol associated with the socket for Internet sockets, or the type of socket (stream or datagram) for UNIX sockets.

LOCAL ADDRESS

For Internet sockets, this is the address the local end of the socket is bound to (see getsockname(2)). For bound UNIX sockets, it is the socket’s filename. For other UNIX sockets, it is a right arrow followed by the endpoint’s filename, or ’’??’’ if the endpoint could not be determined.

FOREIGN ADDRESS

(Internet sockets only) The address the foreign end of the socket is bound to (see getpeername(2)).
