NAME

sockstat – list open sockets

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS


sockstat [-46cLlsu] [-j jid] [-p ports] [-P protocols]

DESCRIPTION

The sockstat command lists open Internet or Unix domain sockets.

The following options are available:
-4
  Show AF_INET (IPv4) sockets.
-6
  Show AF_INET6 (IPv6) sockets.
-c
  Show connected sockets.
-j jid
  Show only sockets belonging to the specified jail ID.
-L
  Only show Internet sockets if the local and foreign addresses are not in the loopback network prefix 127.0.0.0/8, or do not contain the IPv6 loopback address ::1.
-l
  Show listening sockets.
-p ports
  Only show Internet sockets if 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 protocols
  Only show sockets of the specified protocols. The protocols argument is a comma-separated list of protocol names, as they are defined in protocols(5).
-s
  Display the protocol state, if applicable. This is currently only implemented for SCTP and TCP.
-u
  Show AF_LOCAL (Ux) sockets.

If neither -4 -, -6 or -u is specified, sockstat will list sockets in all three domains.

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, datagram, or seqpacket) 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)).

If a socket is associated with more than one file descriptor, it is shown multiple times. If a socket is not associated with any file descriptor, the first four columns have no meaning.

Our grievance is not just against Unix itself, but against the cult of Unix zealots who defend and nurture it. They take the heat, disease, and pestilence as givens, and, as ancient shamans did, display their wounds, some self-inflicted, as proof of their power and wizardry. We aim, through bluntness and humor, to show them that they pray to a tin god, and that science, not religion, is the path to useful and friendly technology.
