Re: file question

/var/spool/sockets/pwgr is used by the password and group caching daemon, pwgrd. See the pwgrd man page for more information.

I turn this off on all of my servers.

Once it is turned off, if you choose to do so, you could also remove the pwgr directory, and its contents, that is in /var/spool/sockets.
