In the NAME field, what are the meanings of INO=28664 and 13u in

type=STREAM ->INO=28664 1073,dbus-daem,13u

?

Thanks.

See the lsof manpage. Its description of the +E option says

Pipe endpoint information is displayed in the NAME column in the form “PID,cmd,FDmode”, where PID is the endpoint process ID; cmd is the endpoint process command; FD is the endpoint file's descriptor; and mode is the endpoint file's access mode.

UNIX socket file endpoint information is displayed in the NAME column in the form “type=TYPE ->INO=INODE PID,cmd,FDmode”, where TYPE is the socket type; INODE is the i-node number of the connected socket; and PID, cmd, FD and mode are the same as with pipe endpoint information. Note: UNIX socket file endpoint information is available only when the compile flags line of -v output contains HASUXSOCKEPT.

So INO=28664 means that the connected socket has inode number 28664, and 13u means that the endpoint’s file descriptor is 13, and its access mode is read/write.
