The socat command shuffles data between two locations. One way to think of socat is as the cat command which transfers data between two locations rather than from a file to standard output.

I have a socat running nicely, executing my command when a connection comes in with the arguments provided. However, the issue I am having is that the socket is at EOF and the next time a connection comes in, the process takes 3 seconds to spin back up.
