snmp is the network package statistics module in kernel, and it is
useful in network issue diagnosis, such as packet drop.
However, it is hard to get the detail information about the packet.
For example, we can know that there is something wrong with the
checksum of udp packet though 'InCsumErrors' of UDP protocol in
/proc/net/snmp, but we can't figure out the ip and port of the packet
that this error is happening on.
Add tracepoint for snmp. Therefor, users can use some tools (such as
eBPF) to get the information of the exceptional packet.
In the first patch, the frame of snmp-tracepoint is created. And in
the second patch, tracepoint for udp-snmp is introduced.
Changes since v1:
- use a single trace event for all statistics type, and special
statistics can be filter by type (procotol) and field.
Now, it will looks like this for udp statistics:
$ cat trace
$ tracer: nop
$ entries-in-buffer/entries-written: 4/4 #P:1
$ _-----=> irqs-off
$ / _----=> need-resched
$ | / _---=> hardirq/softirq
$ || / _--=> preempt-depth
$ ||| / _-=> migrate-disable
$ |||| / delay
$ TASK-PID CPU# ||||| TIMESTAMP FUNCTION
$ | | | ||||| | |
nc-171  ..s1. 35.952997: snmp: skbaddr=(____ptrval____), type=9, field=2, val=1
nc-171  .N... 35.957006: snmp: skbaddr=(____ptrval____), type=9, field=4, val=1
nc-171  ..s1. 35.957822: snmp: skbaddr=(____ptrval____), type=9, field=2, val=1
nc-171  ..... 35.957893: snmp: skbaddr=(____ptrval____), type=9, field=4, val=1
'type=9' means that the event is triggered by udp statistics and 'field=2'
means that this is triggered by 'NoPorts'. 'val=1' means that increases
of statistics (decrease can happen on tcp).
