It can often be helpful to monitor Synchronet's TCP/IP socket and thread utilization. On Unix-like operating systems, you can do this by combining the use of included tools like watch, netstat, grep, pgrep, and top.


$ watch 'netstat -nap | grep /sbbs'


$ top -o -COMMAND -H -p "$(pgrep sbbs)"


On Windows, you can monitor Synchronet's TCP/IP socket and thread utilization using the Task Manager (Windows) and utilities like Process Explorer, pslist and TCPView.

Windows comes with a version of netstat as well.
