Updated lsof packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lsof (LiSt Open Files) package provides a utility to list information about files that are open by the processes running on Linux and UNIX systems.
- Prior to this update, the lsof utility could, under certain circumstances, report incorrect server locations of mounted folders if multiple Network File System (NFS) shares from one host were mounted. This update allows multiple NFS clients to share superblocks. Now, lsof reports the correct server locations of mounted folders.
- Previously, lsof did not recognize Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) associations and consequently printed "can't identify protocol" at the end of the line describing a process using this type of association. With this update, support for SCTP has been added, and as a result, lsof correctly identifies SCTP associations in its output.
Users of lsof are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
