Commit Message

Sathya Perla via dev Nov. 8, 2019, 5:02 a.m. UTC
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. Identify and account all the silent packet drop scenarios

2. Display these drops in ovs-appctl coverage/show

v15(Ilya's comments)
 1. Description in openvswitch.h
 2. Move xlate_error to openvswitch.h to not include ofproto heeader in dp
 3. Return u32 for instead of size of enum
 4. Formatting
 5. Add drop-stats in testsuite.at
 6. Use coverage-read-counter
 7. Use flow instead of raw packet data wherever possible
 8. Change sleep to warp

v14 (Eelco's comments)
 1. Remove definition of dpif_show_drop_stats_support
 2. Remove extra check for drop reason in odp_execute_actions

 v13(Eelco and Illya's comments)
 1. packet_dropped changed to packets_dropped
 2. Uses dp_packet_batch_size instead of packet->size
 3. Add version history

 v12(Ben's comments)
 1. new dp action in kernel block in openvswitch.h
 2. change xlate_error enum to be used as u32 3. resetting xlate error in case of congestion drop
     and forwarding disabled

Not sure what is happening, but your patches show up from “Sriram

Remove the above, as it’s not used. Make sure you use the 
--enable-Werror when doing ./configure as it will catch these errors.


Rest looks good to me…

Anju are you going to sent a v16 with the change?

Ilya putting your new email address on CC, to make sure you have no 
further comments…

My comments are mostly the same as was for the previous versions.
They wasn't fixed.  'lib' files still includes 'ofproto' headers,
non-kernel coding style in kernel headers, 'enum xlate_error'
duplicated now for unknown reason..
