sockstat -- list open sockets SYNOPSIS
sockstat [-clh] [-p ports] [-P pid|process] [-U uid|user] [-G gid|group] DESCRIPTION
The sockstat command lists open Internet or UNIX domain sockets. The following options are available: -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. 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)). SEE ALSO

ss - another utility to investigate sockets SYNOPSIS
ss [options] [ FILTER ] DESCRIPTION
ss is used to dump socket statistics. It allows showing information similar to netstat. It can display more TCP and state informations than other tools. OPTIONS
When no option is used ss displays a list of open non-listening TCP sockets that have established connection. -h, --help Show summary of options. -V, --version Output version information. -n, --numeric Do not try to resolve service names. -r, --resolve Try to resolve numeric address/ports. -a, --all Display both listening and non-listening (for TCP this means established connections) sockets. -l, --listening Display only listening sockets (these are omitted by default). -o, --options Show timer information. -e, --extended Show detailed socket information -m, --memory Show socket memory usage. -p, --processes Show process using socket. -i, --info Show internal TCP information. -s, --summary Print summary statistics. This option does not parse socket lists obtaining summary from various sources. It is useful when amount of sockets is so huge that parsing /proc/net/tcp is painful. -b, --bpf Show socket BPF filters (only administrators are allowed to get these information). -4, --ipv4 Display only IP version 4 sockets (alias for -f inet). -6, --ipv6 Display only IP version 6 sockets (alias for -f inet6). -0, --packet Display PACKET sockets (alias for -f link). -t, --tcp Display TCP sockets. -u, --udp Display UDP sockets. -d, --dccp Display DCCP sockets. -w, --raw Display RAW sockets. -x, --unix Display Unix domain sockets (alias for -f unix). -f FAMILY, --family=FAMILY Display sockets of type FAMILY. Currently the following families are supported: unix, inet, inet6, link, netlink. -A QUERY, --query=QUERY, --socket=QUERY List of socket tables to dump, separated by commas. The following identifiers are understood: all, inet, tcp, udp, raw, unix, packet, netlink, unix_dgram, unix_stream, packet_raw, packet_dgram. -D FILE, --diag=FILE Do not display anything, just dump raw information about TCP sockets to FILE after applying filters. If FILE is - stdout is used. -F FILE, --filter=FILE Read filter information from FILE. Each line of FILE is interpreted like single command line option. If FILE is - stdin is used. FILTER := [ state TCP-STATE ] [ EXPRESSION ] Please take a look at the official documentation (Debian package iproute-doc) for details regarding filters. USAGE EXAMPLES
ss -t -a Display all TCP sockets. ss -u -a Display all UDP sockets. ss -o state established '( dport = :ssh or sport = :ssh )' Display all established ssh connections. ss -x src /tmp/.X11-unix/* Find all local processes connected to X server. ss -o state fin-wait-1 '( sport = :http or sport = :https )' dst 193.233.7/24 List all the tcp sockets in state FIN-WAIT-1 for our apache to network 193.233.7/24 and look at their timers.
