|-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.|
|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.|
|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 sockets filename. For other Unix sockets, it is a right arrow followed by the endpoints filename, or "??" if the endpoint could not be determined.|
|(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.
