Description

Currently it looks like the only 'drops' our netmap support registers is when packets could not be forwarded in bridge mode. If netmap support it, I would like to have capture drops as well.

History

#1 Updated by Victor Julien over 2 years ago

Looking at example code and netmap's libpcap code I don't see drop stats anywhere.

#2 Updated by Victor Julien over 2 years ago

A workaround at least on Linux could be to retrieve NIC drop stats through the ethtool ioctl support.
