NAME

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

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

dbus-cleanup-sockets [DIRECTORY]
 

DESCRIPTION

The dbus-cleanup-sockets command cleans up unused D-Bus connection sockets. See \m[blue]http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/\m[] 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 dont have a corresponding file in /tmp.

On most other flavors of UNIX, its 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 arent really hurting anything, other than cluttering the output of "ls /tmp"

AUTHOR

dbus-cleanup-sockets was adapted by Havoc Pennington from linc-cleanup-sockets written by Michael Meeks.
