I have a conky script that includes the tcp_monitor, but it shows all the localhost connections, too. (::1 and

I cannot split the display by port numbers, as most conky configs do, so I need to filter out localhost.

Are there any ideas?


Having just received the 'Tumbleweed' badge for this question, I think I will answer it with an alternate configuration in case it helps someone:

${execp netstat -upant | grep "tcp\|udp" | grep -v "\|::1" | awk '{split($4, a, ":"); print "%s %s\n", a[1], a[2] }' }

From this starting place, I can grep for different states, different IPs, etc. It's not as good as tcp_monitor and it eats more resources, but it works for my needs.
