GETSOCKET(1) General Commands Manual GETSOCKET(1)

getsocketprint an unused TCP port number


The getsocket utility enables tests scrips to spin up temporary services on using a unique TCP port that can be bound to

pg_tmp(1), bind(2), socket(2)

The getsocket utility cannot guarantee the availability of the allocated port since the socket is recycled by the operating system when the utility returns.
