MySQL 'netstat' info on Solaris

Hello All

I just wanted to know if on solaris ,below two commands need to be run separately unlike AIX where "/usr/bin/netstat -an -f inet " gives tcp as well as udp info.

/usr/bin/netstat -an -f inet -P tcp
/usr/bin/netstat -an -f inet -P udp

Also is there any way i can make these two commands effectively one and use it ? I do not wish to use 2 separate commands.

not according to the 'man' pages.
Why cannot you use 2 commands?

I am using these commands in a fingerprinting tool and this tool would work only on one command at a time.

My code works fine for AIX and Linux but for Solaris i am stuck due to two separate commands.

Then check for the OS (man uname) and implement accordingly.

We know "/usr/bin/netstat -an -f inet" gives all the data but it has diffrent formats of displaying reports for TCP and UDP.

Its certainly a tricky need.

did you try install wireshark

and then filter TCP and UDP

Just create a shell script that call both of them sequentially and run that single script.
