[p4] How can I tell which machine a p4d process is talking to?

Once in a while I have a user do something disruptive like 
delete a depot in the middle of the day (which seems to hang 
perforce until the delete completes). I see, on my Solaris perforce server, 
the p4d processes backing up while waiting for the server to respond. 

But I can't tell, when this is happening, what host the hang is coming from.
So I can't tell who's issued a p4 depot -d (or whatever the command was). 

Is there any way to identify which process is talking to which host? 

If I can identify which host, I can track it to a user running a command
that may be hanging things up.
