Currently OVS maintains explicit packet drop/error counters only on port
    level. Packets that are dropped as part of normal OpenFlow processing are
    counted in flow stats of “drop” flows or as table misses in table stats.
    These can only be interpreted by controllers that know the semantics of
    the configured OpenFlow pipeline. Without that knowledge, it is impossible
    for an OVS user to obtain e.g. the total number of packets dropped due to
    OpenFlow rules.

    Furthermore, there are numerous other reasons for which packets can be
    dropped by OVS slow path that are not related to the OpenFlow pipeline.
    The generated datapath flow entries include a drop action to avoid further
    expensive upcalls to the slow path, but subsequent packets dropped by the
    datapath are not accounted anywhere.

    Finally, the datapath itself drops packets in certain error situations.
    Also, these drops are today not accounted for.

    This makes it difficult for OVS users to monitor packet drop in an OVS
    instance and to alert a management system in case of a unexpected increase
    of such drops. Also OVS trouble-shooters face difficulties in analysing
    packet drops.

    With this patch we implement following changes to address the issues
    mentioned above.

    1. Account and categorize all the packet drops in OVS.
    2. Account & classify “drop” action packet drops according to the drop
       reason.
    3. Identify and account all the silent packet drop scenarios.
    4. Display these drops in ovs-appctl coverage/show
    5. Modified ovs-appctl dpcls/dump-flows and ovs-appctl dpif/dump-flows
       to print drop reason along with drop action

    A detailed presentation on this was presented at OvS conference 2017 and
    link for the corresponding presentation is available at:
    https://www.slideshare.net/LF_OpenvSwitch/lfovs17troubleshooting-the-data-plane-in-ovs-82280329

    Sample ovs-appctl dpcls/dump-flows & ovs-appctl dpif/dump-flows displaying drop reason along with drop action.

     The idea is to use the coverage infrastructure to maintain the drops

    $ ovs-appctl dpctl/dump-flows netdev at ovs-netdev
    flow-dump from pmd on cpu core: 0
    recirc_id(0),in_port(5),packet_type(ns=0,id=0),eth_type(0x0800),ipv4(frag=no), packets:12, bytes:1176, used:0.884s, actions:drop:recursion too deep

    $ ovs-appctl dpif/dump-flows br-int
    recirc_id(0),in_port(5),packet_type(ns=0,id=0),eth_type(0x0800),ipv4(frag=no), packets:25, bytes:2450, used:5.008s, actions:drop:recursion too deep
    recirc_id(0),in_port(5),packet_type(ns=0,id=0),eth_type(0x0806), packets:7, bytes:294, used:0.009s, actions:drop:recursion too deep

   In subsequent commits, we are planning to see if we can use this infrastructure to create a
   wrapper to clear and display counters as well.

Bleep bloop.  Greetings Anju Thomas, I am a robot and I have tried out your patch.
Thanks for your contribution.

I encountered some error that I wasn't expecting.  See the details below.


git-am:
<stdin>:416: new blank line at EOF.
+
warning: 1 line adds whitespace errors.


Please check this out.  If you feel there has been an error, please email aconole@bytheb.org

Thanks,

if() in DP_PACKET_BATCH_FOR_EACH always returns true, so below will never
get called.

Instead, how about comparing p->output_packets->count before and
after DP_PACKET_BATCH_FOR_EACH.
Also, drop here is not because invalid port (or drop reason misleading
slightly), but due to "port_tx_flush".. right ?.

Thanks,
Gowrishankar

Ignore below comment as I slightly overlooked it. invalid port is right
drop reason.

Thanks,
Gowrishankar

Hi folks,

Do these changes look ok?
