LSMOD(8)                     Linux Module Support                     LSMOD(8)



NAME
       lsmod - list loaded modules.

SYNOPSIS
       lsmod [-hV]

DESCRIPTION
       lsmod shows information about all loaded modules.

       The  format  is  name, size, use count, list of referring modules.  The
       information displayed is identical to that  available  from  /proc/mod-
       ules.

       If  the module controls its own unloading via a can_unload routine then
       the user count displayed by lsmod is always  -1,  irrespective  of  the
       real use count.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Display a summary of options and immediately exit.

       -V, --version
              Display the version of lsmod and immediately exit.
