<braunr> we need a netstat command
<pinotree> wouldn't that require rpcs and notifications in pfinet to get
  info on the known sockets?
<braunr> depends on the interface
<braunr> netstat currently uses /proc/net/* so that's out of the question
<braunr> but a bsd netstat using ioctls could do the job
<braunr> i'm not sure if it's done that way
<braunr> i don't see why it would require notifications though
<pinotree> if add such rpcs to pfinet, you could show the sockets in procfs
<braunr> yes
<braunr> that's the clean way :p
<braunr> but why notifications ?
<pinotree> to get changes on data of sockets (status change, i/o activity,
<pinotree> (possibly i'm forgetting some already there features to know
<braunr> the socket state is centralized in pfinet
<braunr> netstat polls it
<braunr> (or asks it once)
