You would want to avoid /dev and /devices

can I locate all socket & Fifo (ie named pipes) in a server by the following commands:

cd /
ls -laR | grep ^p
ls -laR | grep ^s

Then I'll need another command to extract from the output in which filesystem the
above  named Piped & Socket files are located so that our deficient AV scan does
not scan those filesystems blindly (it will go into endless loops)

The above ls commands don't quite work & I have used
"find / -type s"  &  "find / -type p"

Found that there's quite a number of these files in /tmp
& /var/tmp  as well
Mark BullockQA EngineerCommented:
You can try these for FIFO and socket files:
sudo find / -type p
sudo find / -type s
