Linux sockets (originally called Unix Domain Sockets) are special files for communication between processes. They are created by a listening process (ie a daemon) and are used by a caller to control or query the listener. Linux-Sockets are provided by unix.ko. Nearly every AVM daemon provides at least one socket, typically named me_<daemon>.ctl or me_<function>.ctl, some are named different. A good example is me_logic.ctl which is used by ctlmgr_ctl to query ctlmgr. During the request ctlmgr_ctl temporarily creates an answering socket me_ctlmgr_ctl<pid>.ctl awaiting the response from ctlmgr. After the response this socket is removed.

A filtered subset can be found in the avmnexusd article and the dependencies of the AVMIPC-Datastore.

Daily updated index of all Linux sockets found scanning Supportdata-Probes. Last update: 2024-04-25 06:32 GMT.
The label (socket) in the Socket column shows there are other objects in this wiki using this name.
The Mod column shows the amount of models using the respective socket. Click the column header to sort by this number.
Note that sockets are only present if a listener exists, which depends much on activated functions, so this number doesn't say much here.
If no server is listed then this is caused by older supportdata which did not list a server, subject for manual research and configuration one day.

Missing Supportdata

The data in this article is incomplete due to missing Supportdata-Probes for the models listed below.
If you own any of these models and would like to help then please get in touch.
