DBUS-CLEANUP-SOCKE(1)		 User Commands		 DBUS-CLEANUP-SOCKE(1)

NAME
       dbus-cleanup-sockets - clean up leftover	sockets	in a directory

SYNOPSIS
       dbus-cleanup-sockets [DIRECTORY]

DESCRIPTION
       The dbus-cleanup-sockets	command	cleans up unused D-Bus connection
       sockets.	See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more
       information about the big picture.

       If given	no arguments, dbus-cleanup-sockets cleans up sockets in	the
       standard	default	socket directory for the per-user-login-session
       message bus; this is usually /tmp. Optionally, you can pass a different
       directory on the	command	line.

       On Linux, this program is essentially useless, because D-Bus defaults
       to using	"abstract sockets" that	exist only in memory and don't have a
       corresponding file in /tmp.

       On most other flavors of	UNIX, it's possible for	the socket files to
       leak when programs using	D-Bus exit abnormally or without closing their
       D-Bus connections. Thus,	it might be interesting	to run
       dbus-cleanup-sockets in a cron job to mop up any	leaked sockets.	Or you
       can just	ignore the leaked sockets, they	aren't really hurting
       anything, other than cluttering the output of "ls /tmp"

BUGS
       Please send bug reports to the D-Bus mailing list or bug	tracker, see
