Description Petr Pisar 2012-06-07 06:56:42 UTC
The `ss' tool from iproute-2.6.39-6.fc16.x86_64 has option `-a' to list sockets of all types. However it lists TCP sockets only:

root@dhcp-0-146:~ # ss -ulnp | wc -l
28
root@dhcp-0-146:~ # ss -tlnp | wc -l
22
root@dhcp-0-146:~ # ss -alnp | wc -l
22

I just hit this one too :(

$ ss -lan |grep 500
$ ss -lun |grep 500
UNCONN     0      0              76.10.157.69:500                      *:*     
UNCONN     0      0              76.10.157.69:4500                     *:*

Comment 2 Paul Wouters 2012-12-09 02:56:30 UTC
The above was on Fedora with 3.6.0-2
On rhel with 2.6.32 it is worse:

[root@nohats ~]# ss -a -l -n sport = :500
Recv-Q Send-Q                      Local Address:Port                        Peer Address:Port

Comment 3 Paul Wouters 2012-12-09 03:00:25 UTC

    case 'a':
    current_filter.states = SS_ALL;
    break;
    case 'l':
    current_filter.states = (1<<SS_LISTEN) | (1<<SS_CLOSE);
    break;

(09:48:36 PM) misc: and the default filter is defined at the start of the code :
(09:48:37 PM) misc: struct filter default_filter = { .dbs    =  (1<<TCP_DB),
(09:48:44 PM) misc: and this is TCP
(09:54:50 PM) misc: in fact, ss -a do not show udp socket on my old server either
(09:55:15 PM) misc: and git log do not show change on that part ( at least, not a obvious change )

This is fixed in 2.6.32-21.el6 (bug #811219).

Comment 5 Petr Šabata 2012-12-11 15:45:08 UTC
The current behavior, although different from netstat, is in line with ss documentation which just says 'all' lists both listening and non-listening sockets.  The socket type defaults to TCP in ss, as pointed out in comment #3.

I understand users expect netstat's behavior here, as ss is more or less its replacement.
