.SH DESCRIPTION
.I Lsof
revision \*(VN lists on its standard output file information about files
opened by processes for the following UNIX dialects:
.PP
.nf
	Apple Darwin 9 and Mac OS X 10.[567]
	FreeBSD 8.[234], 9.0 and 1[012].0 for AMD64-based systems
	Linux 2.1.72 and above for x86-based systems
	Solaris 9, 10 and 11
.fi
.PP
(See the
.B DISTRIBUTION
section of this manual page for information on how to obtain the
latest
.I lsof
revision.)
.PP
An open file may be a regular file, a directory, a block special file,
a character special file, an executing text reference, a library,
a stream or a network file (Internet socket, NFS file or UNIX domain socket.)
A specific file or all the files in a file system may be selected by path.
.PP
Instead of a formatted display,
.I lsof
will produce output that can be parsed by other programs.
See the
.BR \-F ,
option description, and the
.B "OUTPUT FOR OTHER PROGRAMS"
section for more information.
.PP
In addition to producing a single output list,
.I lsof
will run in repeat mode.
In repeat mode it will produce output, delay, then repeat the output
operation until stopped with an interrupt or quit signal.
See the
.BI +|\-r " [t[m<fmt>]]"
option description for more information.
.SH OPTIONS
In the absence of any options,
.I lsof
lists all open files belonging to all active processes.
.PP
If any list request option is specified, other list requests must be
specifically requested \- e.g., if
.B \-U
is specified for the listing of UNIX socket files, NFS files won't be
listed unless
.B \-N
is also specified;
or if a user list is specified with the
.B \-u
option, UNIX domain socket files, belonging to users not in the list,
won't be listed unless the
.B \-U
option is also specified.
.PP
Normally list options that are specifically stated are ORed \- i.e.,
specifying the
.B \-i
option without an address and the \fB\-u\fPfoo option produces a
listing of all network files OR files belonging to processes owned
by user ``foo''.
The exceptions are:
.TP \w'1)\ 'u
1)
the `^' (negated) login name or user ID (UID), specified with the
.B \-u
option;
.TP \w'1)\ 'u
2)
the `^' (negated) process ID (PID), specified with the
.B \-p
option;
.TP \w'1)\ 'u
3)
the `^' (negated) process group ID (PGID), specified with the
.B \-g
option;
.TP \w'1)\ 'u
4)
the `^' (negated) command, specified with the
.B \-c
option;
.TP \w'1)\ 'u
5)
the (`^') negated TCP or UDP protocol state names, specified with the
.BI \-s " [p:s]"
option.
.PP
Since they represent exclusions, they are applied without ORing or ANDing
and take effect before any other selection criteria are applied.
.PP
The
.B \-a
option may be used to AND the selections.
For example, specifying
.BR \-a ,
.BR \-U ,
and \fB\-u\fPfoo produces a listing of only UNIX socket files that
belong to processes owned by user ``foo''.
.PP
Caution: the
.B \-a
option causes all list selection options to be ANDed; it can't
be used to cause ANDing of selected pairs of selection options
by placing it between them, even though its placement there is
acceptable.
Wherever
.B \-a
is placed, it causes the ANDing of all selection options.
.PP
Items of the same selection set \- command names, file descriptors,
network addresses, process identifiers, user identifiers, zone names,
security contexts \- are joined in a single ORed set and applied
before the result participates in ANDing.
Thus, for example, specifying \fB\-i\fP@aaa.bbb, \fB\-i\fP@ccc.ddd,
.BR \-a ,
and \fB\-u\fPfff,ggg will select the listing of files that belong to
either login ``fff'' OR ``ggg'' AND have network connections to either
host aaa.bbb OR ccc.ddd.
.PP
Options may be grouped together following a single prefix -- e.g.,
the option set ``\fB\-a \-b \-C\fP'' may be stated as
.BR \-abC .
However, since values are optional following
.BR +|\-f ,
.BR \-F ,
.BR \-g ,
.BR \-i ,
.BR +|\-L ,
.BR \-o ,
.BR +|\-r ,
.BR \-s ,
.BR \-S ,
.BR \-T ,
.B \-x
and

when you have no values for them be careful that the
following character isn't ambiguous.
For example,
.B \-Fn
might represent the
.B \-F
and
.B \-n
options, or it might represent the
.B n
field identifier character following the
.B \-F
option.
When ambiguity is possible, start a new option with a `\-'
character \- e.g., ``\fB\-F \-n\fP''.
If the next option is a file name, follow the possibly ambiguous
option with ``\-\-'' \- e.g., ``\fB\-F \-\- \fIname\fR''.
.PP
Either the `+' or the `\-' prefix may be applied to a group of options.
Options that don't take on separate meanings for each
prefix \- e.g., \fB\-i\fP \- may be grouped under either prefix.
Thus, for example, ``+M \-i'' may be stated as ``+Mi'' and the group
means the same as the separate options.
Be careful of prefix grouping when one or more options in the group
does take on separate meanings under different prefixes \-
e.g., \fB+|\-M\fP; ``\-iM'' is not the same request as ``\-i +M''.
When in doubt, use separate options with appropriate prefixes.

A file descriptor number range may be in the set as long as
neither member is empty, both members are numbers, and the ending

.I lsof
to read the device cache at the default or specified path, but
prevents it from creating a new device cache file when none
exists or the existing one is improperly structured.
The

.BR G ,
or
.B n
in any combination it specifies
that the listing of kernel file structure information is to be enabled
(`+') or inhibited (`\-').
.IP
Normally a path name argument is taken to be a file system name if
it matches a mounted\-on directory name reported by
.IR mount (8),
or if it represents a block device, named in the
.I mount
output and associated with a mounted directory name.
When
.B +f
is specified, all path name arguments will be taken to be file
system names, and
.I lsof
will complain if any are not.
This can be useful, for example, when the file system name
(mounted\-on device) isn't a block device.
This happens for some CD-ROM file systems.
.IP
When
.B \-f
is specified by itself, all path name arguments will be taken to be
simple files.
Thus, for example, the ``\fB\-f\fP\ \-\- /'' arguments direct lsof to search
for open files with a `/' path name, not all open files in the `/'
(root) file system.
.IP
Be careful to make sure
.B +f
and
.B \-f
are properly terminated and aren't followed by a character (e.g., of
the file or file system name) that might be taken as a parameter.
For example, use ``\-\-'' after
.B +f

.B \-f
as in these examples.

The listing of information from kernel file structures, requested with the
.B +f [cfgGn]
option form, is normally
inhibited, and is not available in whole or part for some dialects \- e.g.,
/proc\-based Linux kernels below 2.6.22.
When the prefix to
.B f

File structure addresses, use counts, flags, and node addresses may be
used to detect more readily identical files inherited by child

.IP
When
.B +L
is followed by a number, only files having a link count less than
that number will be listed.
(No number may follow
.BR \-L .)
A specification of the form ``\fB+L1\fP'' will select open files that
have been unlinked.
A specification of the form ``\fB+aL1\ \fI<file_system>\fR'' will select
unlinked open files on the specified file system.
.IP
For other link count comparisons, use field output (\fB\-F\fP)
and a post\-processing script or program.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI +|\-m " m"
specifies an alternate kernel memory file or activates
mount table supplement processing.
.IP
The option form
.BI \-m " m"
specifies a kernel memory file,
.IR m ,
in place of
.I /dev/kmem
or
.I /dev/mem
\&\- e.g., a crash dump file.
.IP
The option form
.B +m
requests that a mount supplement file be written to the standard output
file.
All other options are silently ignored.
.IP
There will be a line in the mount supplement file for each mounted file
system, containing the mounted file system directory, followed by a single
space, followed by the device number in hexadecimal "0x" format \- e.g.,
.IP
.nf
	/ 0x801
.fi
.IP
.I Lsof
can use the mount supplement file to get device numbers for file systems
when it can't get them via
.IR stat (2)
or
.IR lstat (2).
.IP
The option form
.BI +m " m"
identifies
.I m
as a mount supplement file.
.IP
Note: the
.B +m
and
.BI +m " m"
options are not available for all supported dialects.
Check the output of
.I lsof's

.TP \w'names'u+4
.B +|\-M
Enables (\fB+\fP) or disables (\fB\-\fP) the
reporting of portmapper registrations for local TCP, UDP and UDPLITE ports,
where port mapping is supported.
(See the last paragraph of this option description for information about
where portmapper registration reporting is supported.)
.IP
The default reporting mode is set by the
.I lsof
builder with the HASPMAPENABLED #define in the dialect's machine.h
header file;
.I lsof
is distributed with the HASPMAPENABLED #define deactivated, so
portmapper reporting is disabled by default and must be requested
with
.BR +M .
Specifying
.I lsof's
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
option will report the default mode.
Disabling portmapper registration when it is already disabled or
enabling it when already enabled is acceptable.
When portmapper registration reporting is enabled,
.I lsof
displays the portmapper registration (if any) for local TCP, UDP or
UDPLITE ports
in square brackets immediately following the port numbers or service
names \- e.g., ``:1234[name]'' or ``:name[100083]''.
The registration information may be a name or number, depending
on what the registering program supplied to the portmapper when
it registered the port.
.IP
When portmapper registration reporting is enabled,
.I lsof
may run a little more slowly or even become blocked when access to the
portmapper becomes congested or stopped.
Reverse the reporting mode to determine if portmapper registration
reporting is slowing or blocking
.IR lsof .
.IP
For purposes of portmapper registration reporting
.I lsof
considers a TCP, UDP or UDPLITE port local if: it is found in the local part
of its containing kernel structure;
or if it is located in the foreign part of its containing kernel
structure and the local and foreign Internet addresses are the same;
or if it is located in the foreign part of its containing kernel
structure and the foreign Internet address is INADDR_LOOPBACK (127.0.0.1).
This rule may make
.I lsof
ignore some foreign ports on machines with multiple interfaces
when the foreign Internet address is on a different interface
from the local one.
.IP
See the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for further discussion of portmapper registration
reporting issues.
.IP
Portmapper registration reporting is supported only on dialects that
have RPC header files.
(Some Linux distributions with GlibC 2.14 do not have them.)
When portmapper registration reporting is supported, the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
help output will show the
.B +|\-M
option.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-n
inhibits the conversion of network numbers to
host names for network files.
Inhibiting conversion may make
.I lsof
run faster.
It is also useful when host name lookup is not working properly.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-N
selects the listing of NFS files.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-o
directs
.I lsof
to display file offset at all times.
It causes the SIZE/OFF output column title to be changed to OFFSET.
Note: on some UNIX dialects
.I lsof
can't obtain accurate or consistent file offset information from its
kernel data sources, sometimes just for particular kinds of files
(e.g., socket files.)
Consult the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information.
.IP
The
.B \-o
and
.B \-s
options are mutually exclusive; they can't both be specified.
When neither is specified,
.I lsof
displays whatever value \- size or offset \- is appropriate and
available for the type of the file.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-o " o"
defines the number of decimal digits (\fIo\fP) to be
printed after the ``0t'' for a file offset before the form is switched
to ``0x...''.
An
.I o
value of zero (unlimited) directs
.I lsof
to use the ``0t'' form for all offset output.
.IP
This option does NOT direct
.I lsof
to display offset at all times; specify
.B \-o
(without a trailing number) to do that.
.BI \-o " o"
only specifies the number of digits after ``0t'' in
either mixed size and offset or offset\-only output.
Thus, for example, to direct
.I lsof
to display offset at all times with a decimal digit count of 10, use:
.IP
.nf
	\-o \-o 10
or
	\-oo10
.fi
.IP
The default number of digits allowed after ``0t'' is normally 8,
but may have been changed by the lsof builder.
Consult the description of the
.BI \-o " o"
option in the output of the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
option to determine the default that is in effect.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-O
directs
.I lsof
to bypass the strategy it uses to avoid being blocked by some
kernel operations \- i.e., doing them in forked child processes.
See the
.B "BLOCKS AND TIMEOUTS"
and
.B "AVOIDING KERNEL BLOCKS"
sections for more information on kernel operations that may block
.IR lsof .
.IP
While use of this option will reduce
.I lsof
startup overhead, it may also cause
.I lsof
to hang when the kernel doesn't respond to a function.
Use this option cautiously.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-p " s"
excludes or selects the listing of files for the processes
whose optional process IDentification (PID) numbers are in the
comma\-separated set
.I s
\&\- e.g., ``123'' or ``123,^456''.
(There should be no spaces in the set.)
.IP
PID numbers that begin with `^' (negation) represent exclusions.
.IP
Multiple process ID numbers are joined in a single ORed set before
participating in AND option selection.
However, PID exclusions are applied without ORing or ANDing
and take effect before other selection criteria are applied.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-P
inhibits the conversion of port numbers to port
names for network files.
Inhibiting the conversion may make
.I lsof
run a little faster.
It is also useful when port name lookup is not working properly.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI +|\-r " [t[m<fmt>]]"
puts
.I lsof
in repeat mode.
There
.I lsof
lists open files as selected by other options, delays
.I t
seconds (default fifteen), then repeats the listing, delaying
and listing repetitively until stopped by a condition defined by
the prefix to the option.
.IP
If the prefix is a `\-', repeat mode is endless.
.I Lsof
must be terminated with an interrupt or quit signal.
.IP
If the prefix is `+', repeat mode will end the first cycle no open files
are listed \- and of course when
.I lsof
is stopped with an interrupt or quit signal.
When repeat mode ends because no files are listed, the process exit code
will be zero if any open files were ever listed; one, if none were ever
listed.
.IP
.I Lsof
marks the end of each listing:
if field output is in progress (the
.BR \-F ,
option has been specified), the default marker is `m'; otherwise the
default marker is ``========''.
The marker is followed by a NL character.
.IP
The optional "m<fmt>" argument specifies a format for the marker line.
The <fmt> characters following `m' are interpreted as a format
specification to the
.IR strftime (3)
function, when both it and the
.IR localtime (3)
function are available in the dialect's C library.
Consult the
.IR strftime (3)
documentation for what may appear in its format specification.
Note that when field output is requested with the
.B \-F
option, <fmt> cannot contain the NL format, ``%n''.
Note also that when <fmt> contains spaces or other characters that
affect the shell's interpretation of arguments, <fmt> must be
quoted appropriately.
.IP
Repeat mode reduces
.I lsof
startup overhead, so it is more efficient to use this mode
than to call
.I lsof
repetitively from a shell script, for example.
.IP
To use repeat mode most efficiently, accompany
.B +|\-r
with specification of other
.I lsof
selection options, so the amount of kernel memory access
.I lsof
does will be kept to a minimum.
Options that filter at the process level \- e.g.,
.BR \-c ,
.BR \-g ,
.BR \-p ,
.B \-u
\&\- are the most efficient selectors.
.IP
Repeat mode is useful when coupled with field output (see the
.BR \-F ,
option description) and a supervising
.I awk
or
.I Perl
script, or a C program.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-R
directs lsof to list the Parent Process IDentification
number in the PPID column.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-s " [p:s]"
.B s
alone directs
.I lsof
to display file size at all times.
It causes the SIZE/OFF output column title to be changed to SIZE.
If the file does not have a size, nothing is displayed.
.IP
The optional
.BI \-s " p:s"
form is available only for selected dialects, and only when the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
help output lists it.
.IP
When the optional form is available, the
.B s
may be followed by a protocol name (\fIp\fR), either TCP or UDP,
a colon (`:') and a comma\-separated protocol state name list,
the option causes open TCP and UDP files to be excluded if their
state name(s) are in the list (\fIs\fP) preceded by a `^'; or
included if their name(s) are not preceded by a `^'.
.IP
Dialects that support this option may support only one protocol.
When an unsupported protocol is specified, a message will be
displayed indicating state names for the protocol are unavailable.
.IP
When an inclusion list is defined, only network files with state
names in the list will be present in the
.I lsof
output.
Thus, specifying one state name means that only network files
with that lone state name will be listed.
.IP
Case is unimportant in the protocol or state names, but there may
be no spaces and the colon (`:') separating the protocol
name (\fIp\fP) and the state name list (\fIs\fP) is required.
.IP
If only TCP and UDP files are to be listed, as controlled by
the specified exclusions and inclusions, the
.B \-i
option must be specified, too.
If only a single protocol's files are to be listed, add its name
as an argument to the
.B \-i
option.
.IP
For example, to list only network files with TCP state LISTEN, use:
.IP
.nf
	\-iTCP \-sTCP:LISTEN
.fi
.IP
Or, for example, to list network files with all UDP states except
Idle, use:
.IP
.nf
	\-iUDP \-sUDP:Idle
.fi
.IP
State names vary with UNIX dialects, so it's not possible to
provide a complete list.  Some common TCP state names are:
CLOSED, IDLE, BOUND, LISTEN, ESTABLISHED, SYN_SENT, SYN_RCDV,
ESTABLISHED, CLOSE_WAIT, FIN_WAIT1, CLOSING, LAST_ACK, FIN_WAIT_2,
and TIME_WAIT.
Two common UDP state names are Unbound and Idle.
.IP
See the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information on how to use protocol state exclusion and
inclusion, including examples.
.IP
The
.B \-o
(without a following decimal digit count) and
.B \-s
option (without a following protocol and state name list)
are mutually exclusive; they can't both be specified.
When neither is specified,
.I lsof
displays whatever value \- size or offset \- is appropriate and
available for the type of file.
.IP
Since some types of files don't have true sizes \- sockets, FIFOs,
pipes, etc.\& \- lsof displays for their sizes the content amounts in
their associated kernel buffers, if possible.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-S " [t]"
specifies an optional time-out seconds value for kernel functions \-
.IR lstat (2),
.IR readlink (2),
and

\- that might otherwise deadlock.
The minimum for
.I t
is two;
the default, fifteen; when no value is specified, the default is used.
.IP
See the
.B "BLOCKS AND TIMEOUTS"
section for more information.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-T " [t]"
controls the reporting of some TCP/TPI information, also
reported by
.IR netstat (1),
following the network addresses.
In normal output the information appears in parentheses, each item
except TCP or TPI state name identified by a keyword, followed by `=',
separated from others by a single space:
.IP
.nf
	<TCP or TPI state name>
	QR=<read queue length>
	QS=<send queue length>
	SO=<socket options and values>
	SS=<socket states>
	TF=<TCP flags and values>
	WR=<window read length>
	WW=<window write length>
.fi
.IP
Not all values are reported for all UNIX dialects.
Items values (when available) are reported after the item name and '='.
.IP
When the field output mode is in effect (See
.BR "OUTPUT FOR OTHER PROGRAMS" .)
each item appears as a field with a `T' leading character.
.IP
.B \-T
with no following key characters disables TCP/TPI information reporting.
.IP
.B \-T
with following characters selects the reporting of specific TCP/TPI
information:
.IP
.nf
	\fBf\fP	selects reporting of socket options,
		states and values, and TCP flags and
		values.
	\fBq\fP	selects queue length reporting.
	\fBs\fP	selects connection state reporting.
	\fBw\fP	selects window size reporting.
.fi
.IP
Not all selections are enabled for some UNIX dialects.
State may be selected for all dialects and is reported by default.
The
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
help output for the
.B \-T
option will show what selections may be used with the UNIX dialect.
.IP
When
.B \-T
is used to select information \- i.e., it is followed by one or more
selection characters \- the displaying of state is disabled by default,
and it must be explicitly selected again in the characters following
.BR \-T .
(In effect, then, the default is equivalent to
.BR \-Ts .)
For example, if queue lengths and state are desired, use
.BR \-Tqs .
.IP
Socket options, socket states, some socket values, TCP flags and
one TCP value may be reported (when available in the UNIX dialect)
in the form of the names that commonly appear after SO_, so_, SS_,
TCP_  and TF_ in the dialect's header files \-
most often <sys/socket.h>, <sys/socketvar.h> and <netinet/tcp_var.h>.
Consult those header files for the meaning of the flags, options,
states and values.
.IP
``SO='' precedes socket options and values; ``SS='', socket states;
and ``TF='', TCP flags and values.
.IP
If a flag or option has a value, the value will follow an '=' and
the name -- e.g., ``SO=LINGER=5'', ``SO=QLIM=5'', ``TF=MSS=512''.
The following seven values may be reported:
.IP
.nf
	Name

the partial listen queue connection count for my dialect?''
questions in the

FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-t
specifies that
.I lsof
should produce terse output with process identifiers only and no header \-
e.g., so that the output may be piped to
.IR kill (1).
.B \-t
selects the
.B \-w
option.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.BI \-u " s"
selects the listing of files for the user whose login names
or user ID numbers are in the comma\-separated set
.I s
\&\- e.g., ``abe'',
or ``548,root''.
(There should be no spaces in the set.)
.IP
Multiple login names or user ID numbers are joined in a single ORed set
before participating in AND option selection.
.IP
If a login name or user ID is preceded by a `^', it becomes a negation \-
i.e., files of processes owned by the login name or user ID will never
be listed.
A negated login name or user ID selection is neither ANDed nor ORed
with other selections; it is applied before all other selections and
absolutely excludes the listing of the files of the process.
For example, to direct
.I lsof
to exclude the listing of files belonging to root processes,
specify ``\-u^root'' or ``\-u^0''.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-U
selects the listing of UNIX domain socket files.

who constructed the binary and where;
the name of the compiler used to construct the
.I lsof binary;
the version number of the compiler when readily available;
the compiler and loader flags used to construct the
.I lsof
binary;
and system information, typically the output of
.IR uname 's
.B \-a
option.
.TP \w'names'u+4
.B \-V
directs
.I lsof
to indicate the items it was asked to list and failed to find \- command
names, file names, Internet addresses or files, login names, NFS files,
PIDs, PGIDs, and UIDs.
.IP
When other options are ANDed to search options, or compile\-time
options restrict the listing of some files,
.I lsof
may not report that it failed to find a search item when an ANDed
option or compile\-time option prevents the listing of the open file
containing the located search item.
.IP
For example, ``lsof \-V \-iTCP@foobar \-a \-d 999'' may not report a
failure to locate open files at ``TCP@foobar'' and may not list
any, if none have a file descriptor number of 999.
A similar situation arises when HASSECURITY and HASNOSOCKSECURITY are
defined at compile time and they prevent the listing of open files.

.IP
.B WARNING:
because this option uses the kernel readx() function, its use on
a busy AIX system might cause an application process to hang so
completely that it can neither be killed nor stopped.
I have never seen this happen or had a report of its happening,
but I think there is a remote possibility it could happen.
.IP
By default use of readx() is disabled.
On AIX 5L and above
.I lsof
may need setuid\-root permission to perform the actions this
option requests.
.IP
The

.B \-X
option be restricted to processes whose real UID is root.
If that has been done, the

help output unless the real UID of the
.I lsof
process is root.
The default
.I lsof
distribution allows any UID to specify
.BR \-X,
so by default it will appear in the help output.
.IP
When AIX readx() use
is disabled,
.I lsof
may not be able to report information for all text and loader file
references, but it may also avoid exacerbating an AIX
kernel directory search kernel error, known as the Stale Segment
ID bug.
.IP
The readx() function, used by
.I lsof
or any other program to access some sections of kernel virtual
memory, can trigger the Stale Segment ID bug.
It can cause the kernel's dir_search() function to believe erroneously
that part of an in\-memory copy of a file system directory has been
zeroed.
Another application process, distinct from
.IR lsof ,
asking the kernel to search the directory \- e.g., by using
.IR open "(2) \-"
can cause dir_search() to loop forever, thus hanging the application process.

or
.IR unlink (2).
.IP
The cached path is followed by the string ``\ (deleted)'' to indicate
that the path by which the file was opened has been deleted.
.IP
Because intervening changes made to the path \- i.e., renames with
.IR mv (1)
or
.IR rename (2)
\- are not recorded in the cached path, what
.I lsof
reports is only the path by which the file was opened, not its

Without a following argument \- e.g., NO
.IR z " \-"
the option specifies that zone names are to be listed in the ZONE
output column.
.IP
The
.B \-z
option may be followed by a zone name,
.BI z .
That causes lsof to list only open files for processes in that zone.
Multiple

Any open file of any process in any of the zones will be listed, subject
to other conditions specified by other options and arguments.

To be considered a file system, the
.I name
must match a mounted\-on directory name in
.IR mount (8)
output, or match the name of a block device associated with a mounted\-on
directory name.
The
.B +|\-f
option may be used to force
.I lsof
to consider a
.I name
a file system identifier (\fB+f\fP) or a simple file (\fB\-f\fP).
.IP
If
.I name
is a path to a directory that is not the mounted\-on directory name of
a file system, it is treated just as a regular file is treated \- i.e.,
its listing is restricted to processes that have it open as a file or
as a process\-specific directory, such as the root or current working
directory.
To request that
.I lsof
look for open files inside a directory name, use the
.BI +d " s"
and
.BI +D " D"
options.
.IP
If a
.I name
is the base name of a family of multiplexed files \- e.g, AIX's
.IR /dev/pt[cs] " \-"
.I lsof
will list all the associated multiplexed files on the device that
are open \- e.g.,
.IR /dev/pt[cs]/1 ,
.IR /dev/pt[cs]/2 ,
etc.
.IP
If a
.I name
is a UNIX domain socket name,
.I lsof
will usually search for it by the characters of the name alone \- exactly as
it is specified and is recorded in the kernel socket structure.
(See the next paragraph for an exception to that rule for Linux.)
Specifying a relative path \- e.g.,
.I ./file
\&\- in place of the
file's absolute path \- e.g.,
.I /tmp/file
\&\- won't work because
.I lsof
must match the characters you specify with what it finds in the
kernel UNIX domain socket structures.
.IP
If a
.I name
is a Linux UNIX domain socket name, in one case
.I lsof
is able to search for it by its device and inode number, allowing
.I name
to be a relative path.
The case requires that the absolute path -- i.e., one beginning with a
slash ('/') be used by the process that created the socket, and hence be
stored in the
.I /proc/net/unix
file; and it requires that
.I lsof
be able to obtain the device and node numbers of both the absolute path in
.I /proc/net/unix
and
.I name
via successful
.IR stat (2)
system calls.
When those conditions are met,
.I lsof
will be able to search for the UNIX domain socket when some path to it is
is specified in
.IR name .
Thus, for example, if the path is
.IR /dev/log ,
and an
.I lsof
search is initiated when the working directory is
.IR /dev ,
then
.I name
could be
.IR ./log .
.IP
If a
.I name
is none of the above,
.I lsof
will list any open files whose device and inode match that of the
specified path
.IR name .
.IP
If you have also specified the
.B \-b
option,
the only
.I names
you may safely specify are file systems for which your mount table
supplies alternate device numbers.
See the
.B "AVOIDING KERNEL BLOCKS"
and
.B "ALTERNATE DEVICE NUMBERS"
sections for more information.
.IP
Multiple file names are joined in a single ORed set before
participating in AND option selection.
.SH AFS
.I Lsof
supports the recognition of AFS files for these dialects (and AFS
versions):
.PP
.nf
	AIX 4.1.4 (AFS 3.4a)
	HP\-UX 9.0.5 (AFS 3.4a)
	Linux 1.2.13 (AFS 3.3)
	Solaris 2.[56] (AFS 3.4a)
.fi
.PP
It may recognize AFS files on other versions of these dialects,
but has not been tested there.
Depending on how AFS is implemented,
.I lsof
may recognize AFS files in other dialects, or may have difficulties
recognizing AFS files in the supported dialects.
.PP
.I Lsof
may have trouble identifying all aspects of AFS files in
supported dialects when AFS kernel support is implemented via
dynamic modules whose addresses do not appear in the kernel's
variable name list.
In that case,
.I lsof
may have to guess at the identity of AFS files, and might not be able to
obtain volume information from the kernel that is needed for calculating
AFS volume node numbers.
When
.I lsof
can't compute volume node numbers, it reports blank in the NODE column.
.PP
The
.BI \-A " A"
option is available in some dialect implementations of
.I lsof
for specifying the name list file where dynamic module kernel
addresses may be found.
When this option is available, it will be listed in the
.I lsof
help output, presented in response to the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
.PP
See the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information about dynamic modules, their
symbols, and how they affect
.I lsof
options.
.PP
Because AFS path lookups don't seem to participate in the
kernel's name cache operations,
.I lsof
can't identify path name components for AFS files.
.SH SECURITY
.I Lsof
has three features that may cause security concerns.
First, its default compilation mode allows anyone to list all
open files with it.
Second, by default it creates a user\-readable and user\-writable device
cache file in the home directory of the real user ID that executes
.IR lsof .
(The list\-all\-open\-files and device cache features may be disabled when
.I lsof
is compiled.)
Third, its
.B \-k
and
.B \-m
options name alternate kernel name list or memory files.
.PP
Restricting the listing of all open files is controlled by the
compile\-time HASSECURITY and HASNOSOCKSECURITY options.
When HASSECURITY is defined,
.I lsof
will allow only the root user to list all open files.
The non\-root user may list only open files of processes with the same user
IDentification number as the real user ID number of the
.I lsof
process (the one that its user logged on with).
.PP
However, if HASSECURITY and HASNOSOCKSECURITY are both defined,
anyone may list open socket files, provided they are selected
with the
.B \-i
option.
.PP
When HASSECURITY is not defined, anyone may list all open files.
.PP
Help output, presented in response to the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
option, gives the status of the HASSECURITY and HASNOSOCKSECURITY definitions.
.PP
See the
.B Security
section of the
.I 00README
file of the
.I lsof
distribution for information on building
.I lsof
with the HASSECURITY and HASNOSOCKSECURITY options enabled.
.PP
Creation and use of a user\-readable and user\-writable device
cache file is controlled by the compile\-time HASDCACHE option.
See the
.B "DEVICE CACHE FILE"
section and the sections that follow it for details on how its path
is formed.
For security considerations it is important to note that in the default
.I lsof
distribution, if the real user ID under which
.I lsof
is executed is root, the device cache file will be written in root's
home directory \- e.g.,
.I /
or
.IR /root .
When HASDCACHE is not defined,
.I lsof
does not write or attempt to read a device cache file.
.PP
When HASDCACHE is defined, the
.I lsof
help output, presented in response to the
.BR \-h ,
.BR \-D? ,
or
.B \-?
options, will provide device cache file handling information.
When HASDCACHE is not defined, the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
output will have no
.B \-D
option description.
.PP
Before you decide to disable the device cache file feature \- enabling
it improves the performance of
.I lsof
by reducing the startup overhead of examining all the nodes in
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
\&\- read the discussion of it in the
.I 00DCACHE
file of the
.I lsof
distribution and the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
.PP
WHEN IN DOUBT, YOU CAN TEMPORARILY DISABLE THE USE OF THE DEVICE CACHE FILE
WITH THE
.B \-Di
OPTION.
.PP
When
.I lsof
user declares alternate kernel name list or memory files with the
.B \-k
and
.B \-m
options,
.I lsof
checks the user's authority to read them with
.IR access (2).
This is intended to prevent whatever special power
.I lsof's
modes might confer on it from letting it read files not normally
accessible via the authority of the real user ID.
.SH OUTPUT
This section describes the information
.I lsof
lists for each open file.
See the
.B "OUTPUT FOR OTHER PROGRAMS"
section for additional information on output that can be processed
by another program.
.PP
.I Lsof
only outputs printable (declared so by
.IR isprint (3))
8 bit characters.
Non\-printable characters are printed in one of three forms:
the C ``\\[bfrnt]'' form;
the control character `^' form (e.g., ``^@'');
or hexadecimal leading ``\\x'' form (e.g., ``\\xab'').
Space is non\-printable in the COMMAND column (``\\x20'')
and printable elsewhere.
.PP
For some dialects \- if HASSETLOCALE is defined in the dialect's
machine.h header file \-
.I lsof
will print the extended 8 bit characters of a language locale.
The
.I lsof
process must be supplied a language locale environment variable
(e.g., LANG) whose value represents a known language locale
in which the extended characters are considered printable by
.IR isprint (3).
Otherwise
.I lsof
considers the extended characters non\-printable and prints them according
to its rules for non\-printable characters, stated above.
Consult your dialect's
.IR setlocale (3)
man page for the names of other environment variables that may
be used in place of LANG \- e.g., LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, etc.
.PP
.I Lsof's
language locale support for a dialect also covers wide characters \- e.g.,
UTF-8 \- when HASSETLOCALE and HASWIDECHAR are defined in the dialect's
machine.h header file, and when a suitable language locale has been defined
in the appropriate environment variable for the
.I lsof
process.
Wide characters are printable under those conditions if
.IR iswprint (3)
reports them to be.
If HASSETLOCALE, HASWIDECHAR and a suitable language locale aren't defined,
or if
.IR iswprint (3)
reports wide characters that aren't printable,
.I lsof
considers the wide characters non\-printable and prints each of their
8 bits according to its rules for non\-printable characters, stated above.
.PP
Consult the answers to the "Language locale support" questions in the
lsof FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.) for more information.
.PP
.I Lsof
dynamically sizes the output columns each time it runs, guaranteeing
that each column is a minimum size.
It also guarantees that each column is separated from its predecessor
by at least one space.
.TP \w'COMMAND'u+4
COMMAND
contains the first nine characters of the name of the UNIX command
associated with the process.
If a non\-zero
.I w
value is specified to the
.BI +c " w"
option, the column contains the first
.I w
characters of the name of the UNIX command associated with the process
up to the limit of characters supplied to
.I lsof
by the UNIX dialect.
(See the description of the
.BI +c " w"
command or the
.I lsof
FAQ for more information.
The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
.IP
If
.I w
is less than the length of the column title, ``COMMAND'', it will
be raised to that length.
.IP
If a zero
.I w
value is specified to the
.BI +c " w"
option, the column contains all the characters of the name of the UNIX command
associated with the process.
.IP
All command name characters maintained by the kernel in its structures
are displayed in field output when the command name descriptor (`c')
is specified.
See the
.B "OUTPUT FOR OTHER COMMANDS"
section for information on selecting field output and the associated
command name descriptor.
.TP
PID
is the Process IDentification number of the process.
.TP
TID
is the task (thread) IDentification number, if task (thread)
reporting is supported by the dialect and a task (thread) is
being listed.
(If help output \- i.e., the output of the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
options \- shows this option, then task (thread) reporting is
supported by the dialect.)
.IP
A blank TID column in Linux indicates a process \- i.e., a non\-task.
.TP
TASKCMD
is the task command name.
Generally this will be the same as the process named in the COMMAND
column, but some task implementations (e.g., Linux) permit a task to
change its command name.
.IP
The TASKCMD column width is subject to the same size limitation as the
COMMAND column.
.TP
ZONE
is the Solaris 10 and higher zone name.
This column must be selected with the
.B \-z
option.
.TP
SECURITY\-CONTEXT
is the SELinux security context.
This column must be selected with the
.B \-Z
option.
Note that the
.B \-Z
option is inhibited when SELinux is disabled in the running Linux
kernel.
.TP
PPID
is the Parent Process IDentification number of the process.
It is only displayed when the
.B \-R
option has been specified.
.TP
PGID
is the process group IDentification number associated with
the process.
It is only displayed when the
.B \-g
option has been specified.
.TP
USER
is the user ID number or login name of the user to whom
the process belongs, usually the same as reported by
.IR ps (1).
However, on Linux USER is the user ID number or login that owns
the directory in /proc where
.I lsof
finds information about the process.
Usually that is the same value reported by
.IR ps (1),
but may differ when the process has changed its effective user ID.
(See the
.B \-l
option description for information on when a user ID number or
login name is displayed.)
.TP
FD
is the File Descriptor number of the file or:
.IP
.nf
	\fBcwd\fP	current working directory;
.br
	\fBL\fInn\fR	library references (AIX);
.br
	\fBerr\fR	FD information error (see NAME column);

.IP
FD is followed by one of these characters, describing the mode under which
the file is open:
.IP
	\fBr\fP for read access;
.br
	\fBw\fP for write access;
.br
	\fBu\fP for read and write access;
.br
	space if mode unknown and no lock
.br
		character follows;
.br
	`\-' if mode unknown and lock
.br
		character follows.
.IP
The mode character is followed by one of these lock characters, describing
the type of lock applied to the file:
.IP
	\fBN\fP for a Solaris NFS lock of unknown type;
.br
	\fBr\fP for read lock on part of the file;
.br
	\fBR\fP for a read lock on the entire file;

A value is displayed in this column only if it is available.
.I Lsof
displays whatever value \- size or offset \- is appropriate for the type
of the file and the version of
.IR lsof .
.IP
On some UNIX dialects
.I lsof
can't obtain accurate or consistent file offset information from its
kernel data sources, sometimes just for particular kinds of files
(e.g., socket files.)
In other cases, files don't have true sizes \- e.g., sockets, FIFOs,
pipes \- so
.I lsof
displays for their sizes the content amounts it finds in their kernel
buffer descriptors (e.g., socket buffer size counts or TCP/IP window
sizes.)
Consult the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information.
.IP
The file size is displayed in decimal;
the offset is normally displayed in decimal with a leading ``0t'' if
it contains 8 digits or less; in hexadecimal with a leading ``0x'' if
it is longer than 8 digits.
(Consult the
.BI \-o " o"
option description for information on when 8 might default to
some other value.)
.IP
Thus the leading ``0t'' and ``0x'' identify an offset when the column
may contain both a size and an offset (i.e., its title is SIZE/OFF).
.IP
If the
.B \-o
option is specified,
.I lsof
always displays the file offset (or nothing if no offset is available)
and labels the column OFFSET.
The offset always begins with ``0t'' or ``0x'' as described above.
.IP
The
.I lsof
user can control the switch from ``0t'' to ``0x'' with the
.BI \-o " o"
option.
Consult its description for more information.
.IP
If the
.B \-s
option is specified,
.I lsof
always displays the file size (or nothing if no size is available)
and labels the column SIZE.
The
.B \-o
and
.B \-s
options are mutually exclusive; they can't both be specified.
.IP
For files that don't have a fixed size \- e.g., don't reside
on a disk device \-
.I lsof
will display appropriate information about the current size or
position of the file if it is available in the kernel structures
that define the file.
.TP
NLINK
contains the file link count when
.B +L
has been specified;
.TP
NODE
is the node number of a local file;
.IP
or the inode number of an NFS file in the server host;
.IP
or the Internet protocol type \- e.g, ``TCP'';
.IP
or ``STR'' for a stream;
.IP
or ``CCITT'' for an HP\-UX x.25 socket;
.IP
or the IRQ or inode number of a Linux AX.25 socket device.
.TP
NAME
is the name of the mount point and file system on which the file resides;
.IP
or the name of a file specified in the
.I names
option (after any symbolic links have been resolved);
.IP
or the name of a character special or block special device;
.IP
or the local and remote Internet addresses of a network file;
the local host name or IP number is followed by a colon (':'), the

IP addresses may be reported as numbers or names, depending on the
.BR +|\-M ,
.BR \-n ,
and
.B \-P
options;
colon\-separated IPv6 numbers are enclosed in square brackets;
IPv4 INADDR_ANY and IPv6 IN6_IS_ADDR_UNSPECIFIED addresses, and
zero port numbers are represented by an asterisk ('*');
a UDP destination address may be followed by the amount of time
elapsed since the last packet was sent to the destination;
TCP, UDP and UDPLITE remote addresses may be followed by TCP/TPI
information in parentheses \- state (e.g., ``(ESTABLISHED)'', ``(Unbound)''),
queue sizes, and window sizes (not all dialects) \- in a fashion
similar to what
.IR netstat (1)
reports;
see the
.B \-T
option description or the description of the TCP/TPI field in
.B "OUTPUT FOR OTHER PROGRAMS"
for more information on state, queue size, and window size;
.IP
or the address or name of a UNIX domain socket, possibly including
a stream clone device name, a file system object's path name, local
and foreign kernel addresses, socket pair information, and a bound
vnode address;
.IP
or the local and remote mount point names of an NFS file;
.IP
or ``STR'', followed by the stream name;
.IP
or a stream character device name, followed by ``\->'' and the stream name
or a list of stream module names, separated by ``\->'';
.IP
or ``STR:'' followed by the SCO OpenServer stream device and module
names, separated by ``\->'';
.IP
or system directory name, `` \-\- '', and as many components of the path
name as
.I lsof
can find in the kernel's name cache for selected dialects
(See the
.B "KERNEL NAME CACHE"
section for more information.);
.IP
or ``PIPE\->'', followed by a Solaris kernel pipe destination address;
.IP
or ``COMMON:'', followed by the vnode device information structure's
device name, for a Solaris common vnode;
.IP
or the address family, followed by a slash (`/'), followed by fourteen
comma\-separated bytes of a non\-Internet raw socket address;
.IP
or the HP\-UX x.25 local address, followed by the virtual connection
number (if any), followed by the remote address (if any);
.IP
or ``(dead)'' for disassociated Tru64 UNIX files \- typically terminal files
that have been flagged with the TIOCNOTTY ioctl and closed by daemons;
.IP
or ``rd=<offset>'' and ``wr=<offset>'' for the values of the
read and write offsets of a FIFO;
.IP
or ``clone \fIn\fP:/dev/event'' for SCO OpenServer file clones of the
.I /dev/event
device, where
.I n
is the minor device number of the file;

or ``(socketpair: n)'' for a Solaris 2.6, 8, 9  or 10
UNIX domain socket, created by the
.IR socketpair (3N)
network function;
.IP
or ``no PCB'' for socket files that do not have a protocol block
associated with them, optionally followed by ``, CANTSENDMORE'' if
sending on the socket has been disabled, or ``, CANTRCVMORE'' if
receiving on the socket has been disabled (e.g., by the
.IR shutdown (2)
function);
.IP
or the local and remote addresses of a Linux IPX socket file
in the form <net>:[<node>:]<port>, followed in parentheses
by the transmit and receive queue sizes, and the connection state;
.IP
or ``dgram'' or ``stream'' for the type UnixWare 7.1.1 and above in\-kernel
UNIX domain sockets, followed by a colon (':') and the local path name
when available, followed by ``\->'' and the remote path name or kernel
socket address in hexadecimal when available;
.IP
or the association value, association index, endpoint value, local address,
local port, remote address and remote port for Linux SCTP sockets;
.IP
or ``protocol: '' followed by the Linux socket's protocol attribute.
.PP
For dialects that support a ``namefs'' file system, allowing one
file to be attached to another with
.IR fattach (3C),
.I lsof
will add ``(FA:<address1><direction><address2>)'' to the NAME column.
<address1> and <address2> are hexadecimal vnode addresses.
<direction> will be ``<\-'' if <address2> has been fattach'ed to
this vnode whose address is <address1>;
and ``\->'' if <address1>, the vnode address of this vnode, has been
fattach'ed to <address2>.
<address1> may be omitted if it already appears in the DEVICE column.
.PP
.I
Lsof
may add two parenthetical notes to the NAME column for open Solaris 10 files:
\&``(?)'' if
.I lsof
considers the path name of questionable accuracy;
and ``(deleted)'' if the
.B \-X
option has been specified and
.I lsof
detects the open file's path name has been deleted.
Consult the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information on these NAME column additions.
.SH LOCKS
.I Lsof
can't adequately report the wide variety of UNIX dialect file locks
in a single character.
What it reports in a single character is a compromise between the
information it finds in the kernel and the limitations of the reporting
format.
.PP
Moreover, when a process holds several byte level locks on a file,
.I lsof
only reports the status of the first lock it encounters.
If it is a byte level lock, then the lock character will be reported
in lower case \- i.e., `r', `w', or `x' \- rather than the upper case
equivalent reported for a full file lock.
.PP
Generally
.I lsof
can only report on locks held by local processes on local files.
When a local process sets a lock on a remotely mounted (e.g., NFS)
file, the remote server host usually records the lock state.
One exception is Solaris \- at some patch levels of 2.3, and in all
versions above 2.4, the Solaris kernel records information on remote
locks in local structures.
.PP
.I Lsof
has trouble reporting locks for some UNIX dialects.
Consult the
.B BUGS
section of this manual page or the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for more information.
.SH "OUTPUT FOR OTHER PROGRAMS"
When the
.B \-F
option is specified,
.I lsof
produces output that is suitable for processing by another program \- e.g, an
.I awk
or
.I Perl
script, or a C program.
.PP
Each unit of information is output in a field that is identified
with a leading character and terminated by a NL (012) (or a NUL
(000) if the 0 (zero) field identifier character is specified.)
The data of the field follows immediately after the field identification
character and extends to the field terminator.
.PP
It is possible to think of field output as process and file sets.
A process set begins with a field whose identifier is `p' (for
process IDentifier (PID)).
It extends to the beginning of the next PID field or the beginning
of the first file set of the process, whichever comes first.
Included in the process set are fields that identify the command,
the process group IDentification (PGID) number, the task (thread)
ID (TID), and the user ID (UID) number or login name.
.PP
A file set begins with a field whose identifier is `f' (for
file descriptor).
It is followed by lines that describe the file's access mode,
lock state, type, device, size, offset, inode, protocol, name
and stream module names.
It extends to the beginning of the next file or process set,
whichever comes first.
.PP
When the NUL (000) field terminator has been selected with the
0 (zero) field identifier character,
.I lsof
ends each process and file set with a NL (012) character.
.PP
.I Lsof
always produces one field, the PID (`p') field.
All other fields may be declared optionally in the field identifier
character list that follows the
.B \-F
option.
When a field selection character identifies an item
.I lsof
does not normally list \- e.g., PPID, selected with
.BR \-R " \-"
specification of the field character \- e.g., ``\fB\-FR\fP'' \-
also selects the listing of the item.
.PP
It is entirely possible to select a set of fields that cannot
easily be parsed \- e.g., if the field descriptor field is not
selected, it may be difficult to identify file sets.
To help you avoid this difficulty,
.I lsof
supports the
.B \-F
option; it selects the output of all fields with NL terminators
(the
.B \-F0
option pair selects the output of all fields with NUL terminators).
For compatibility reasons neither
.B \-F
nor
.B \-F0
select the raw device field.
.PP
These are the fields that
.I lsof
will produce.
The single character listed first is the field identifier.
.PP

.fi
.PP
You can get on\-line help information on these characters and their
descriptions by specifying the
.B \-F?
option pair.
(Escape the `?' character as your shell requires.)
Additional information on field content can be found in the
.B OUTPUT
section.
.PP
As an example, ``\fB\-F pcfn\fP'' will select the process ID (`p'),
command name (`c'), file descriptor (`f') and file name (`n')
fields with an NL field terminator character; ``\fB\-F pcfn0\fP''
selects the same output with a NUL (000) field terminator character.
.PP
.I Lsof
doesn't produce all fields for every process or file set, only
those that are available.
Some fields are mutually exclusive: file device characters and
file major/minor device numbers; file inode number and protocol
name; file name and stream identification; file size and offset.
One or the other member of these mutually exclusive sets will appear
in field output, but not both.
.PP
Normally
.I lsof
ends each field with a NL (012) character.
The
0 (zero) field identifier character may be specified to change the
field terminator character
to a NUL (000).
A NUL terminator may be easier to process with
.I xargs (1),
for example, or with programs whose quoting mechanisms may not
easily cope with the range of characters in the field output.
When the NUL field terminator is in use,
.I lsof
ends each process and file set with a NL (012).
.PP
Three aids to producing programs that can process
.I lsof
field output are included in the
.I lsof
distribution.
The first is a C header file,
.IR lsof_fields.h ,
that contains symbols for the field identification characters, indexes for
storing them in a table, and explanation strings that may be compiled into
programs.
.I Lsof
uses this header file.
.PP
The second aid is a set of sample scripts that process field output,
written in
.IR awk ,
.I Perl
4, and
.I Perl
5.
They're located in the
.I scripts
subdirectory of the
.I lsof
distribution.
.PP
The third aid is the C library used for the
.I lsof
test suite.
The test suite is written in C and uses field output to validate
the correct operation of
.IR lsof .
The library can be found in the
.I tests/LTlib.c
file of the
.I lsof
distribution.
The library uses the first aid, the
.I lsof_fields.h
header file.
.SH "BLOCKS AND TIMEOUTS"
.I Lsof
can be blocked by some kernel functions that it uses \-
.IR lstat (2),
.IR readlink (2),
and
.IR stat (2).
These functions are stalled in the kernel, for example, when the
hosts where mounted NFS file systems reside become inaccessible.
.PP
.I Lsof
attempts to break these blocks with timers and child processes,
but the techniques are not wholly reliable.
When
.I lsof
does manage to break a block, it will report the break with an error
message.
The messages may be suppressed with the
.B \-t
and
.B \-w
options.
.PP
The default timeout value may be displayed with the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
option, and it may be changed with the
.BI \-S " [t]"
option.
The minimum for
.I t
is two seconds, but you should avoid small values, since slow system
responsiveness can cause short timeouts to expire unexpectedly and
perhaps stop
.I lsof
before it can produce any output.
.PP
When
.I lsof
has to break a block during its access of mounted file system
information, it normally continues, although with less information
available to display about open files.
.PP
.I Lsof
can also be directed to avoid the protection of timers and child processes
when using the kernel functions that might block by specifying the
.B \-O
option.
While this will allow
.I lsof
to start up with less overhead, it exposes
.I lsof
completely to the kernel situations that might block it.
Use this option cautiously.
.SH "AVOIDING KERNEL BLOCKS"
.PP
You can use the
.B \-b
option to tell
.I lsof
to avoid using kernel functions that would block.
Some cautions apply.
.PP
First, using this option usually requires that your system supply
alternate device numbers in place of the device numbers that
.I lsof
would normally obtain with the
.IR lstat (2)
and
.IR stat (2)
kernel functions.
See the
.B "ALTERNATE DEVICE NUMBERS"
section for more information on alternate device numbers.
.PP
Second, you can't specify
.I names
for
.I lsof
to locate unless they're file system names.
This is because
.I lsof
needs to know the device and inode numbers of files listed with
.I names
in the
.I lsof
options, and the
.B \-b
option prevents
.I lsof
from obtaining them.
Moreover, since
.I lsof
only has device numbers for the file systems that have alternates,
its ability to locate files on file systems depends completely on the
availability and accuracy of the alternates.
If no alternates are available, or if they're incorrect,
.I lsof
won't be able to locate files on the named file systems.
.PP
Third, if the names of your file system directories that
.I lsof
obtains from your system's mount table are symbolic links,
.I lsof
won't be able to resolve the links.
This is because the
.B \-b
option causes
.I lsof
to avoid the kernel
.IR readlink (2)
function it uses to resolve symbolic links.
.PP
Finally, using the
.B \-b
option causes
.I lsof
to issue warning messages when it needs to use the kernel functions
that the
.B \-b
option directs it to avoid.
You can suppress these messages by specifying the
.B \-w
option, but if you do, you won't see the alternate device numbers
reported in the warning messages.
.SH "ALTERNATE DEVICE NUMBERS"
.PP
On some dialects, when
.I lsof
has to break a block because it can't get information about a
mounted file system via the
.IR lstat (2)
and
.IR stat (2)
kernel functions, or because you specified the
.B \-b
option,
.I lsof
can obtain some of the information it needs \- the device number and
possibly the file system type \- from the system mount table.
When that is possible,
.I lsof
will report the device number it obtained.
(You can suppress the report by specifying the
.B \-w
option.)
.PP
You can assist this process if your mount table is supported with an
.I /etc/mtab
or
.I /etc/mnttab
file that contains an options field by adding a ``dev=xxxx'' field for
mount points that do not have one in their options strings.
Note: you must be able to edit the file \- i.e., some mount tables
like recent Solaris /etc/mnttab or Linux /proc/mounts are read\-only
and can't be modified.
.PP
You may also be able to supply device numbers using the
.B +m
and
.BI +m " m"
options, provided they are supported by your dialect.
Check the output of
.I lsof's
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
options to see if the
.B +m
and
.BI +m " m"
options are available.
.PP
The ``xxxx'' portion of the field is the hexadecimal value
of the file system's device number.
(Consult the
.I st_dev
field of the output of the
.IR lstat (2)
and
.IR stat (2)
functions for the appropriate values for your file systems.)
Here's an example from a Sun Solaris 2.6
.I /etc/mnttab
for a file system remotely mounted via NFS:
.PP
.nf
	nfs  ignore,noquota,dev=2a40001
.fi
.PP
There's an advantage to having ``dev=xxxx'' entries in your mount
table file, especially for file systems that are mounted from remote
NFS servers.
When a remote server crashes and you want to identify its users by running
.I lsof
on one of its clients,
.I lsof
probably won't be able to get output from the
.IR lstat (2)
and
.IR stat (2)
functions for the file system.
If it can obtain the file system's device number from the mount table,
it will be able to display the files open on the crashed NFS server.
.PP
Some dialects that do not use an ASCII
.I /etc/mtab
or
.I /etc/mnttab
file for the mount table may still provide an alternative device number
in their internal mount tables.
This includes AIX, Apple Darwin, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and Tru64 UNIX.
.I Lsof
knows how to obtain the alternative device number for these dialects
and uses it when its attempt to
.IR lstat (2)
or
.IR stat (2)
the file system is blocked.
.PP
If you're not sure your dialect supplies alternate device numbers
for file systems from its mount table, use this
.I lsof
incantation to see if it reports any alternate device numbers:
.PP
.IP
lsof \-b
.PP
Look for standard error file warning messages that
begin ``assuming "dev=xxxx" from ...''.
.SH "KERNEL NAME CACHE"
.PP
.I Lsof
is able to examine the kernel's name cache or use other kernel
facilities (e.g., the ADVFS 4.x tag_to_path() function under
Tru64 UNIX) on some dialects for most file system types,
excluding AFS, and extract recently used path name components from it.
(AFS file system path lookups don't use the kernel's name cache; some
Solaris VxFS file system operations apparently don't use it, either.)
.PP
.I Lsof
reports the complete paths it finds in the NAME column.
If
.I lsof
can't report all components in a path, it reports in the NAME column
the file system name, followed by a space, two `\-' characters, another
space, and the name components it has located, separated by
the `/' character.
.PP
When
.I lsof
is run in repeat mode \- i.e., with the
.B \-r
option specified \- the extent to which it can report path name
components for the same file may vary from cycle to cycle.
That's because other running processes can cause the kernel to
remove entries from its name cache and replace them with others.
.PP
.I Lsof's
use of the kernel name cache to identify the paths of files
can lead it to report incorrect components under some circumstances.
This can happen when the kernel name cache uses device and node
number as a key (e.g., SCO OpenServer) and a key on a rapidly
changing file system is reused.
If the UNIX dialect's kernel doesn't purge the name cache entry for
a file when it is unlinked,
.I lsof
may find a reference to the wrong entry in the cache.
The
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
has more information on this situation.
.PP
.I Lsof
can report path name components for these dialects:
.PP
.nf
	FreeBSD
	HP\-UX
	Linux
	NetBSD
	NEXTSTEP
	OpenBSD
	OPENSTEP
	SCO OpenServer
	SCO|Caldera UnixWare

	AIX
.fi
.PP
If you want to know why
.I lsof
can't report path name components for some dialects, see the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
.SH "DEVICE CACHE FILE"
.PP
Examining all members of the
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
node tree with
.IR stat (2)
functions can be time consuming.
What's more, the information that
.I lsof
needs \- device number, inode number, and path \- rarely changes.
.PP
Consequently,
.I lsof
normally maintains an ASCII text file of cached
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
information (exception: the /proc\-based Linux
.I lsof
where it's not needed.)
The local system administrator who builds
.I lsof
can control the way the device cache file path is formed, selecting
from these options:
.PP
.nf
	Path from the \fB\-D\fP option;
	Path from an environment variable;
	System\-wide path;
	Personal path (the default);
	Personal path, modified by an environment variable.
.fi
.PP
Consult the output of the
.BR \-h ,
.B \-D? ,
or
.B \-?
help options for the current state of device cache support.
The help output lists the default read\-mode device cache file path that
is in effect for the current invocation of
.IR lsof .
The
.B \-D?
option output lists the read\-only and write device cache file paths,
the names of any applicable environment variables, and the personal
device cache path format.
.PP
.I Lsof
can detect that the current device cache file has been accidentally
or maliciously modified by integrity checks, including the computation
and verification of a sixteen bit Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) sum on
the file's contents.
When
.I lsof
senses something wrong with the file, it issues a warning and attempts
to remove the current cache file and create a new copy, but only to
a path that the process can legitimately write.
.PP
The path from which a
.I lsof
process may attempt to read a device cache file may not be the same
as the path to which it can legitimately write.
Thus when
.I lsof
senses that it needs to update the device cache file, it may
choose a different path for writing it from the path from which
it read an incorrect or outdated version.
.PP
If available, the
.B \-Dr
option will inhibit the writing of a new device cache file.
(It's always available when specified without a path name argument.)
.PP
When a new device is added to the system, the device cache file may
need to be recreated.
Since
.I lsof
compares the mtime of the device cache file with the mtime and ctime
of the
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
directory, it usually detects that a new device has been added;
in that case
.I lsof
issues a warning message and attempts to rebuild the device cache file.
.PP
Whenever
.I lsof
writes a device cache file, it sets its ownership to the real UID
of the executing process, and its permission modes to 0600, this
restricting its reading and writing to the file's owner.
.SH "LSOF PERMISSIONS THAT AFFECT DEVICE CACHE FILE ACCESS"
.PP
Two permissions of the
.I lsof
executable affect its ability to access device cache files.
The permissions are set by the local system administrator when
.I lsof
is installed.
.PP
The first and rarer permission is setuid\-root.
It comes into effect when
.I lsof
is executed; its effective UID is then
root, while its real (i.e., that of the logged\-on user) UID is not.
The
.I lsof
distribution recommends that versions for these dialects run setuid\-root.
.PP
.nf
	HP-UX 11.11 and 11.23
	Linux
.fi
.PP
The second and more common permission is setgid.
It comes into effect when the effective group IDentification number (GID)
of the
.I lsof
process is set to one that can access kernel memory devices \-
e.g., ``kmem'', ``sys'', or ``system''.
.PP
An
.I lsof
process that has setgid permission usually surrenders the permission
after it has accessed the kernel memory devices.
When it does that,
.I lsof
can allow more liberal device cache path formations.
The
.I lsof
distribution recommends that versions for these dialects run setgid
and be allowed to surrender setgid permission.

(Note:

.SH "DEVICE CACHE FILE PATH FROM THE \-D OPTION"
.PP
The
.B \-D
option provides limited means for specifying the device cache file path.
Its
.B ?
function will report the read\-only and write device cache file paths that
.I lsof
will use.
.PP
When the
.B \-D
.BR b ,
.BR r ,
and
.B u
functions are available, you can use them to request that the cache file be
built in a specific location (\fBb\fR[\fIpath\fR]);
read but not rebuilt (\fBr\fR[\fIpath\fR]);
or read and rebuilt (\fBu\fR[\fIpath\fR]).
The
.BR b ,
.BR r ,
and
.B u
functions are restricted under some conditions.
They are restricted when the
.I lsof
process is setuid\-root.
The path specified with the
.B r
function is always read\-only, even
when it is available.
.PP
The
.BR b ,
.BR r ,
and
.B u
functions are also restricted when the
.I lsof
process runs setgid and
.I lsof
doesn't surrender the setgid permission.
(See the
.B "LSOF PERMISSIONS THAT AFFECT DEVICE CACHE FILE ACCESS"
section for a list of implementations that normally don't surrender
their setgid permission.)
.PP
A further
.B \-D
function,
.B i
(for ignore), is always available.
.PP
When available, the
.B b
function tells
.I lsof
to read device information from the kernel with the
.IR stat (2)
function and build a device cache file at the indicated path.
.PP
When available, the
.B r
function tells
.I lsof
to read the device cache file, but not update it.
When a path argument accompanies
.BR \-Dr ,
it names the device cache file path.
The
.B r
function is always available when it is specified without a
path name argument.
If
.I lsof
is not running setuid\-root and surrenders its setgid permission,
a path name argument may accompany the
.B r
function.
.PP
When available, the
.B u
function tells
.I lsof
to attempt to read and use the device cache file.
If it can't read the file, or if it finds the contents of the
file incorrect or outdated, it will read information from the kernel,
and attempt to write an updated version of the device cache file,
but only to a path it considers legitimate for the
.I lsof
process effective and real UIDs.
.SH "DEVICE CACHE PATH FROM AN ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE"
.PP
.I Lsof's
second choice for the device cache file is the contents of the
LSOFDEVCACHE environment variable.
It avoids this choice if the
.I lsof
process is setuid\-root, or the real UID of the process is root.
.PP
A further restriction applies to a device cache file path taken from
the LSOFDEVCACHE environment variable:
.I lsof
will not write a device cache file to the path if the
.I lsof
process doesn't surrender its setgid permission.
(See the
.B "LSOF PERMISSIONS THAT AFFECT DEVICE CACHE FILE ACCESS"
section for information on implementations that don't surrender
their setgid permission.)
.PP
The local system administrator can disable the use of the LSOFDEVCACHE
environment variable or change its name when building
.IR lsof .
Consult the output of
.B \-D?
for the environment variable's name.
.SH "SYSTEM-WIDE DEVICE CACHE PATH"
.PP
The local system administrator may choose to have a system\-wide
device cache file when building
.IR lsof .
That file will generally be constructed by a special system administration
procedure when the system is booted or when the contents of
.I /dev
or
.IR /devices )
changes.
If defined, it is
.I lsof's
third device cache file path choice.
.PP
You can tell that a system\-wide device cache file is in effect
for your local installation by examining the
.I lsof
help option output \- i.e., the output from the
.B \-h
or
.B \-?
option.
.PP
.I Lsof
will never write to the system\-wide device cache file path by
default.
It must be explicitly named with a
.B \-D
function in a root\-owned procedure.
Once the file has been written, the procedure must change its permission
modes to 0644 (owner\-read and owner\-write, group\-read, and other\-read).
.SH "PERSONAL DEVICE CACHE PATH (DEFAULT)"
.PP
The default device cache file path of the
.I lsof
distribution is one recorded in the home directory of the real UID
that executes
.IR lsof .
Added to the home directory is a second path component of the form
.IR .lsof_hostname .
.PP
This is
.I lsof's
fourth device cache file path choice, and is
usually the default.
If a system\-wide device cache file path was defined when
.I lsof
was built,
this fourth choice will be applied when
.I lsof
can't find the system\-wide device cache file.
This is the
.B only
time
.I lsof
uses two paths when reading the device cache file.
.PP
The
.I hostname
part of the second component is the base
name of the executing host, as returned by
.IR gethostname (2).
The base name is defined to be the characters preceding the first `.'
in the
.IR gethostname (2)
output, or all the
.IR gethostname (2)
output if it contains no `.'.
.PP
The device cache file belongs to the user ID and is readable and
writable by the user ID alone \- i.e., its modes are 0600.
Each distinct real user ID on a given host that executes
.I lsof
has a distinct device cache file.
The
.I hostname
part of the path distinguishes device cache files in an NFS\-mounted
home directory into which device cache files are written from
several different hosts.
.PP
The personal device cache file path formed by this method represents
a device cache file that
.I lsof
will attempt to read, and will attempt to write should it not
exist or should its contents be incorrect or outdated.
.PP
The
.B \-Dr
option without a path name argument will inhibit the writing of a new
device cache file.
.PP
The
.B \-D?
option will list the format specification for constructing the
personal device cache file.
The conversions used in the format specification are described in the
.I 00DCACHE
file of the
.I lsof
distribution.
.SH "MODIFIED PERSONAL DEVICE CACHE PATH"
.PP
If this option is defined by the local system administrator when
.I lsof
is built, the LSOFPERSDCPATH environment variable contents may
be used to add a component of the personal device cache file path.
.PP
The LSOFPERSDCPATH variable contents are inserted in the path at the
place marked by the local system administrator with the ``%p''
conversion in the HASPERSDC format specification of the dialect's
.I machine.h
header file.
(It's placed right after the home directory in the default
.I lsof
distribution.)
.PP
Thus, for example, if LSOFPERSDCPATH contains ``LSOF'', the home
directory is ``/Homes/abe'', the host name is ``lsof.itap.purdue.edu'',
and the HASPERSDC format is the default (``%h/%p.lsof_%L''), the
modified personal device cache file path is:
.PP
.nf
	/Homes/abe/LSOF/.lsof_vic
.fi
.PP
The LSOFPERSDCPATH environment variable is ignored when the
.I lsof
process is setuid\-root or when the real UID of the process is root.
.PP
.I Lsof
will not write to a modified personal device cache file path if the
.I lsof
process doesn't surrender setgid permission.
(See the
.B "LSOF PERMISSIONS THAT AFFECT DEVICE CACHE FILE ACCESS"
section for a list of implementations that normally don't surrender
their setgid permission.)
.PP
If, for example, you want to create a sub\-directory of personal
device cache file paths by using the LSOFPERSDCPATH environment
variable to name it, and
.I lsof
doesn't surrender its setgid permission, you will have to allow
.I lsof
to create device cache files at the standard personal path and
move them to your subdirectory with shell commands.
.PP
The local system administrator may: disable this option when
.I lsof
is built; change the name of the environment variable from
LSOFPERSDCPATH to something else; change the HASPERSDC
format to include the personal path component in another place;
or exclude the personal path component entirely.
Consult the output of the
.B \-D?
option for the environment variable's name and the HASPERSDC
format specification.
.SH DIAGNOSTICS
Errors are identified with messages on the standard error file.
.PP
.I Lsof
returns a one (1) if any error was detected, including the failure to
locate command names, file names, Internet addresses or files, login
names, NFS files, PIDs, PGIDs, or UIDs it was asked to list.
If the
.B \-V
option is specified,
.I lsof
will indicate the search items it failed to list.
.PP
It returns a zero (0) if no errors were detected and if it was able to
list some information about all the specified search arguments.
.PP
.PP
When
.I lsof
cannot open access to
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
or one of its subdirectories, or get information on a file in them with
.IR stat (2),
it issues a warning message and continues.
That
.I lsof
will issue warning messages about inaccessible files in
.I /dev
(or
.IR /devices )
is indicated in its help output \- requested with the
.B \-h
or
>B \-?
options \-  with the message:
.PP
.nf
	Inaccessible /dev warnings are enabled.
.fi
.PP
The warning message may be suppressed with the
.B \-w
option.
It may also have been suppressed by the system administrator when
.I lsof
was compiled by the setting of the WARNDEVACCESS definition.
In this case, the output from the help options will include the message:
.PP
.nf
	Inaccessible /dev warnings are disabled.
.fi
.PP
Inaccessible device warning messages usually disappear after
.I lsof
has created a working device cache file.

.SH BUGS
Since
.I lsof
reads kernel memory in its search for open files, rapid changes in kernel
memory may produce unpredictable results.
.PP
When a file has multiple record locks, the lock status character
(following the file descriptor) is derived from a test of the first
lock structure, not from any combination of the individual record
locks that might be described by multiple lock structures.
.PP
.I Lsof
can't search for files with restrictive access permissions by
.I name
unless it is installed with root set\-UID permission.
Otherwise it is limited to searching for files to which its user
or its set-GID group (if any) has access permission.
.PP
The display of the destination address of a raw socket (e.g., for
.IR ping )
depends on the UNIX operating system.
Some dialects store the destination address in the raw socket's protocol
control block, some do not.
.PP
.I Lsof
can't always represent Solaris device numbers in the same way that
.IR ls (1)
does.
For example, the major and minor device numbers that the
.IR lstat (2)
and
.IR stat (2)
functions report for the directory on which CD-ROM files are mounted
(typically
.IR /cdrom )
are not the same as the ones that it reports for the device on which
CD-ROM files are mounted (typically
.IR /dev/sr0 ).
(\fILsof\fP reports the directory numbers.)
.PP
The support for
.I /proc
file systems is available only for BSD and Tru64 UNIX dialects, Linux, and
dialects derived from SYSV R4 \- e.g., FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris,
UnixWare.
.PP
Some
.I /proc
file items \- device number, inode number, and file size \-
are unavailable in some dialects.
Searching for files in a
.I /proc
file system may require that the full path name be specified.
.PP
No text (\fBtxt\fP) file descriptors are displayed for Linux
processes.
All entries for files other than the current working directory,
the root directory, and numerical file descriptors are labeled
.B mem
descriptors.
.PP
.I Lsof
can't search for Tru64 UNIX named pipes by name, because their kernel
implementation of lstat(2) returns an improper device number for a
named pipe.
.PP
.I Lsof
can't report fully or correctly on HP\-UX 9.01, 10.20, and 11.00 locks
because of insufficient access to kernel data or errors in the
kernel data.
See the
.I lsof
FAQ (The \fBFAQ\fP section gives its location.)
for details.
.PP
The AIX SMT file type is a fabrication.
It's made up for file structures whose type (15) isn't defined in the AIX
.I /usr/include/sys/file.h
header file.
One way to create such file structures is to run X clients with the DISPLAY
variable set to ``:0.0''.
.PP
The
.BI +|\-f [cfgGn]
option is not supported under /proc\-based Linux
.IR lsof ,
because it doesn't read kernel structures from kernel memory.
