Thanks to all for the quick replies...

The overwhelming response was to use lsof, available from sunfreeware.com
(pkg VAlsof).  Once installed, you can say:
# lsof -p <PID>
It shows full path names and translates socket addresses, etc. - exactly
what I was looking for.  I'll be adding it to our jumpstart and retrofit
existing systems if warranted.

Subject: translating pfile output


Is there a quick way to tell which files a process has open?  I'm trying to
use pfiles, but by the time I translate the "dev:<Major,Minor>" in a mixed
DiskSuite/Veritas/physical-disk environment, figure out which filesystems
they map to, then run multiple "find </fs> -inum <INODE> -ls" on all of them
(which can be excrutiating on an fs with lots of files), I've usually
forgotten why I was looking in the first place.

Any help is appreciated...
