Sockstat first gets a list of all open sockets, then looks up the command name for each one. If the process has exited before the name is looked up, you get the warning, and sockstat prints "??" as the process name. You can quiet it by redirecting stderr to /dev/null: sockstat 2>/dev/null -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
