# Unix Domain Sockets
tristate "Unix domain sockets"
If you say Y here, you will include support for Unix domain sockets;
sockets are the standard Unix mechanism for establishing and
accessing network connections. Many commonly used programs such as
the X Window system and syslog use these sockets even if your
machine is not connected to any network. Unless you are working on
an embedded system or something similar, you therefore definitely
want to say Y here.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be
called unix. Note that several important services won't work
correctly if you say M here and then neglect to load the module.
Say Y unless you know what you are doing.
tristate "UNIX: socket monitoring interface"
depends on UNIX
Support for UNIX socket monitoring interface used by the ss tool.
If unsure, say Y.
