PROBE::LINUXMIB.LI(3stap)				      SNMP Information Tapset					 PROBE::LINUXMIB.LI(3stap)

NAME
probe::linuxmib.ListenDrops - Count of times conn request that were dropped SYNOPSIS
linuxmib.ListenDrops VALUES
sk Pointer to the struct sock being acted on op Value to be added to the counter (default value of 1) DESCRIPTION
The packet pointed to by skb is filtered by the function linuxmib_filter_key. If the packet passes the filter is is counted in the global ListenDrops (equivalent to SNMP's MIB LINUX_MIB_LISTENDROPS) SystemTap Tapset Reference June 2014 PROBE::LINUXMIB.LI(3stap)

NAME
tapset::snmp - Systemtap simple network management protocol probe points. DESCRIPTION
This family of probe points enhances the Linux system's implementation of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) by allowing the user to collect per-socket statistics. SNMP data is collected in the Linux kernel by counting various events occurring in the networking subsystem. Linux provides one counter for each type of event, thus providing a system-wide collection of network statistics. These statis- tics can be viewed with the command: netstat -s. The probe points defined in the SNMP group of tapsets allow users to aberrate each SNMP counter into groups of counters. For example, the user may count SNMP events for a single network socket or for a group of sockets. Severals SNMP tapsets have been created. Each tapset represents a single layer of the network stack and defines a group of counters called management information blocks or MIBs. Currently tapsets are provided that support MIBS for IP, TCP layers and the enhanced linux MIB. See the file /usr/include/linux/snmp.h for a list of MIBS supported by linux. PROBE HANDLERS, COUNTERS AND CALLBACKS Each probe represents a single SNMP statistic. The probe's handler is called each time the system performs an operation that would alter the associated statistic. Each probe also defines an indexed set of counters used to record probe hits. The probe handler calls a user sup- plied callback functions to determine which counter to alter. The user's callback should return a key value that will be used to index the counter. For example a callback could return a unique value for each socket. This would results in a separate counter being used for each socket. Each tapset is now described. Examples of probe names and counter names are given. See the tapset itself for a complete list of supported probes. Users of the tapset must provide a callback function matching the name and prototype as shown. IP MIB Tapset: Example probe name: ipmib.InReceives Example counter name: InReceives Callback prototype: ipmib_filter_key:long (skb:long, op:long, SourceIsLocal:long) This user supplied function should compute and return a value used to index the statistical counter. The skb is a pointer to the struct sk_buff being processed at the time. The local ip-address and port number will be located in either the source or destination fields of the network packet. SourceIsLocal will be true if the local address is in the source field. The probe handler will add the value of op to the counter. To skip counting the event return a value of zero. TCP MIB tapset: Example probe name: tcpmib.InSegs Example counter name: InSegs Callback prototype: tcpmib_filter_key:long (sk:long, op:long) This user supplied function should compute and return a value used to index the statistical counter. The sk is a pointer to the struct sock being processed at the time. The probe handler will add the value of op to the counter. To skip counting the event return a value of zero. LINUX MIB tapset: linuxmib.stp Example probe name: linuxmib.DelayedACKs Example counter name: DelayedACKs Callback prototype: linuxmib_filter_key:long (sk:long, op:long) This user supplied function should compute and return a value used to index the statistical counter. The sk is a pointer to the struct sock being processed at the time. The probe handler will add the value of op to the counter. To skip counting the event return a value of zero. EXAMPLE
This example script counts the number of TCP retransmits and records them per-remote address. It displays the counts when terminated. /* Enable the statistic we want to record. */ probe tcpmib.RetransSegs {} /* * Find the remote address and return * it as an index to the counter array. */ function tcpmib_filter_key: long ( sk:long, op:long ){ if ( !sk ) return 0; raddr = sk_get_daddr(sk); return raddr } /* Print the results. */ probe end { foreach (addr in RetransSegs ) printf ("%s %d ",ip_ntop(htonl(addr)), lport) } FILES
