critical impact:

netstat command - option differences (CrCh355)

CMD Impacts

Problem description

HP-UX and Tru64 UNIX both implement the netstat command to display network statistics, but there are differences in command options.

The differences in the options for each version of the netstat command are:

  • HP-UX
    • -g shows multicast information for network interfaces.
    • -v shows additional routing information.

  • Tru64 UNIX
    • -A displays either the address of any protocol control blocks associated with sockets or the addresses of routing table entries with bitmasks.
    • -b displays the contents of Mobile IPv6 binding cache.
    • -d displays the number of dropped packets.
    • -g displays statistics since the system was last booted.
    • -H displays the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) table.
    • -I interface -s displays the DNA Data Link Layer counters (64-bit values) for the specified network interface and the adapter's status and characteristics.
    • -I interface -c displays the current access filter for the specified network interface.
    • -m displays information about memory allocated to the data structures associated with network operations.
    • -o displays the DNA data Link Layer conters (old 32-bit values) for the specified network interface and the adapter's status and characteristics.
    • -R displays the host's routing tables on each Resource Affinity Domain (RAD), if the system is NUMA-capable.
    • -t displays timer inforamtion.
    • -u displays information about domain sockets (UNIX domain).
    • -v displays more verbose output.
    • -x displays the status of the IPsec Security Associations (SAs).
    • -X displays the status of the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) Protocol SAs.
    • -z displays the current network interface statistics or protocol statistics, and then sets them to zero.
