NAME
       dbus-cleanup-sockets - clean up leftover sockets in a directory

SYNOPSIS
       dbus-cleanup-sockets [DIRECTORY]

DESCRIPTION
       The   dbus-cleanup-sockets   command  cleans  up  unused  D-Bus	connection  sockets.  See
       http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information about the big picture.

       If given no arguments, dbus-cleanup-sockets cleans up  sockets  in  the	standard  default
       socket  directory  for  the  per-user-login-session  message  bus;  this  is usually /tmp.
       Optionally, you can pass a different directory on the command line.

       On Linux, this program is essentially useless, because D-Bus defaults to  using	"abstract
       sockets" that exist only in memory and don't have a corresponding file in /tmp.

       On  most  other	flavors of UNIX, it's possible for the socket files to leak when programs
       using D-Bus exit abnormally or without closing their D-Bus connections. Thus, it might  be
       interesting  to	run  dbus-cleanup-sockets in a cron job to mop up any leaked sockets.  Or
       you can just ignore the leaked sockets, they aren't really hurting  anything,  other  than
       cluttering the output of "ls /tmp"
