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

nit, but maybe packetS_dropped make more sense…

Here you need to use the dp_packet_batch_size(packets_) macro also, so

packetsCOVERAGE_INC_dropped = packet_count - 
dp_packet_batch_size(packets_);

There was a comment from Benn you did not reply to, so I leave this 
open:

“I'm uncomfortable with the two new errors XLATE_CONGESTION_DROP and
XLATE_FORWARDING_DISABLED as translation errors, since they aren't
translation errors and don't prevent translation from completing.”

> +    XLATE_MAX,

Why did you at XLATE_MAX as it’s not used?

Thanks for the comments Eelco. I will address them in the next patch.

On a similar note, are these the final set of comments for this patch ?

There was a comment from Benn you did not reply to, so I leave this 
open:

“I'm uncomfortable with the two new errors XLATE_CONGESTION_DROP and
XLATE_FORWARDING_DISABLED as translation errors, since they aren't
translation errors and don't prevent translation from completing.”

Why did you at XLATE_MAX as it’s not used?

Yes.  Basically Ben wanted to not propagate ctx.error as error to the datapath. Hence I have reset it to XLATE_OK after setting it as drop reason above.

I have used XLATE_MAX because I am using this value for comparison in datapath. In future if more errors are introduced we don’t need to change this in comparison in future. (Ref func: odp_execute_actions condition  if (*drop_reason < XLATE_MAX) )

Not a code review. Just a few notes about patch formatting.

Best regards, Ilya Maximets.

Above line should go after the '---' line as it's not useful in a git log.

Version history should be here and it'll be good if it will be a bit
more detailed, i.e. what really changed in this and previous versions.
Like this:

Version 13:
  * Implemented something.
  * Fixed something.

Version 12:
  * ...

Without history it's hard to track changes especially for long living
or big patches.

Same applicable to other patches on a mail-list.

One more hint is that it's better to add relevant reviewers to CC list
while sending patches. This could speed up review process as not everyone
subscribed to all the messages from mail-list.
