Description

Abstract sockets (unix(7)) are not tied to the filesystem, and are available since Linux 2.2.

Those are Linux-specific.

Those are the same as regular unix domain but their first character of path is NULL. They have the benefit of not requiring unlinking of files left behind.

We could use those abstract sockets in lttng-consumerd on Linux.
