[PATCH] drop_monitor: allow more events per second

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@xxxxxxxxxx>

It seems there is a logic error in trace_drop_common(), since we store
only 64 drops, even if they are from same location.

This fix is a one liner, but we probably need more work to avoid useless
atomic dec/inc

Now I can watch 1 Mpps drops through dropwatch...

Neil, it seems this code is not SMP/preempt safe. Worker can free our
data under us, and genlmsg_new() can return NULL under stress.
