MODSTAT(8)                  System Manager's Manual                 MODSTAT(8)

NAME
     modstat -- display status of loaded kernel modules

SYNOPSIS
     modstat [-n] [name]

DESCRIPTION
     The modstat utility displays the status of any kernel modules present in
     the kernel.

     The options are as follows:

     -n name
             Display the status of only the module with this name.  Please
             note that -n is optional.

     In addition to listing the currently loaded modules' name, the
     information reported by modstat includes:

     CLASS     Module class, such as "vfs", "driver", "exec", "misc" or
               "secmodel".

     SOURCE    Where the module was loaded from.  "builtin" indicates that the
               module was built into the running kernel.  "boot" indicates
               that the module was loaded during system bootstrap.  "filesys"
               indicates that the module was loaded from the file system.

     SIZE      Size of the module in bytes.

     REFS      Number of references held on the module.  Disabled builtin
               modules will show a count of -1 here.

     REQUIRES  Additional modules that must be present.

EXIT STATUS
     The modstat utility exits with a status of 0 on success and with a
     nonzero status if an error occurs.

     corresponding command in SunOS 4.1.3.
