Perhaps /sysutils/lsof? Desc. as follows.
Lsof (LiSt Open Files) lists information about files
that are open by the running processes. An open file
may be a regular file, a directory, a block special
file, a character special file, an executing text
reference, a library, a stream or a network file
(Internet socket, NFS file or Unix domain socket).
See also fstat(1) in the base system.
I have only recently installed it, not a clue as to
how to use it, however.
BTW, if Mr. Nelson is considered "Junior Kernel
Hacker", I qualify as "Senior Keyboard Drooler".
AKA, take my advice with a grain of salt.
