Monitoring TCP connections number

watch "ss -nat | awk '"'{print $1}'"' | sort | uniq -c"
Monitoring TCP connections number showing each state. It uses ss instead of netstat because it's much faster with high trafic. You can fgrep specific ports by piping right before awk: watch "ss -nat | fgrep :80 | awk '"'{print $1}'"' | sort | uniq -c"
