The kldstat utility displays the status of any files dynamically linked into the kernel.

The following options are available:

Option Description
-h Display the size field in a human-readable form, using unit suffixes instead of hex values.
-v Be more verbose.
-d Show the module specific data (as int, unsigned int and unsigned long)
-i id; Display the status of only the file with this ID.
-n filename; Display the status of only the file with this filename.
-q Only check if module is loaded or compiled into the kernel.
-m modname; Display the status of only the module with this modname.


With the command:
without any option will give you something like this:
