I am aware of how to change the configured CLOSE_WAIT time from its default in Solaris, HPUX, and Linux.  What I would like to know is how can I see how long a socket has been in a CLOSE_WAIT state.

For Solaris:

eg:
set the time-out value to 1 minute:

ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_close_wait_interval 60000
man ndd

Yes I am aware of the ndd commands, but what if you are analyzing the impact of a new application on a server and you wish to look at the current sockets in a CLOSE_WAIT status ( netstat -a | grep CLOSE_WAIT) and see how long they have been in that state?  If it can't be done, then it can't be done.. but I am curious to know if it is possible to stat this.

I think if you app software has keep alive time setting, and you use it, should
be good enough for you.

You can use netstat, lsof, nmap. (lsof and nmap are freeware, you can download
from the web)

eg:
Solaris:  http://sunfreeware.com/

HP-UX:   http://hpux.cict.fr/          (search for lsof, nmap)
             
Have a look at the following UNIX Socket FAQ:
