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.
