GLD_STATS(9S) Data Structures for Drivers GLD_STATS(9S)


NAME


gld_stats - Generic LAN Driver statistics data structure

SYNOPSIS


#include <sys/gld.h>


INTERFACE LEVEL


Solaris architecture specific (Solaris DDI).

DESCRIPTION


The Generic LAN Driver (GLD) statistics (gld_stats) structure is used to
communicate statistics and state information from a GLD-based driver to
GLD when returning from a driver's gldm_get_stats() routine as discussed
in gld(9E) and gld(7D). The members of this structure, filled in by the
GLD-based driver, are used when GLD reports the statistics. In the tables
below, the name of the statistics variable reported by GLD is noted in
the comments. See gld(7D) for a more detailed description of the meaning
of each statistic.


Drivers can make no assumptions about the length of this structure, which
might be different in different releases of Solaris and/or GLD. Structure
members private to GLD, not documented here, should not be set or read by
the device specific driver.

STRUCTURE MEMBERS


The following structure members are defined for all media types:

uint64_t glds_speed; /* ifspeed */
uint32_t glds_media; /* media */
uint32_t glds_intr; /* intr */
uint32_t glds_norcvbuf; /* norcvbuf */
uint32_t glds_errrcv; /* ierrors */
uint32_t glds_errxmt; /* oerrors */
uint32_t glds_missed; /* missed */
uint32_t glds_underflow; /* uflo */
uint32_t glds_overflow; /* oflo */


The following structure members are defined for media type DL_ETHER:

uint32_t glds_frame; /* align_errors */
uint32_t glds_crc; /* fcs_errors */
uint32_t glds_duplex; /* duplex */
uint32_t glds_nocarrier; /* carrier_errors */
uint32_t glds_collisions; /* collisions */
uint32_t glds_excoll; /* ex_collisions */
uint32_t glds_xmtlatecoll; /* tx_late_collisions */
uint32_t glds_defer; /* defer_xmts */
uint32_t glds_dot3_first_coll; /* first_collisions */
uint32_t glds_dot3_multi_coll; /* multi_collisions */
uint32_t glds_dot3_sqe_error; /* sqe_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot3_mac_xmt_error; /* macxmt_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot3_mac_rcv_error; /* macrcv_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot3_frame_too_long; /* toolong_errors */
uint32_t glds_short; /* runt_errors */


The following structure members are defined for media type DL_TPR:

uint32_t glds_dot5_line_error /* line_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_burst_error /* burst_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_signal_loss /* signal_losses */
uint32_t glds_dot5_ace_error /* ace_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_internal_error /* internal_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_lost_frame_error /* lost_frame_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_frame_copied_error /* frame_copied_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_token_error /* token_errors */
uint32_t glds_dot5_freq_error /* freq_errors */


Note -

Support for the DL_TPR media type is obsolete and may be removed in a
future release of Solaris.


The following structure members are defined for media type DL_FDDI:

uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_error; /* mac_errors */
uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_lost; /* mac_lost_errors */
uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_token; /* mac_tokens */
uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_tvx_expired; /* mac_tvx_expired */
uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_late; /* mac_late */
uint32_t glds_fddi_mac_ring_op; /* mac_ring_ops */


Note -

Support for the DL_FDDI media type is obsolete and may be removed in a
future release of Solaris.


Most of the above statistics variables are counters denoting the number
of times the particular event was observed. Exceptions are:

glds_speed
An estimate of the interface's current bandwidth in bits
per second. For interfaces that do not vary in bandwidth
or for those where no accurate estimation can be made,
this object should contain the nominal bandwidth.


glds_media
The type of media (wiring) or connector used by the
hardware. Currently supported media names include
GLDM_AUI, GLDM_BNC, GLDM_TP, GLDM_10BT, GLDM_100BT,
GLDM_100BTX, GLDM_100BT4, GLDM_RING4, GLDM_RING16,
GLDM_FIBER, and GLDM_PHYMII. GLDM_UNKNOWN can also be
specified.


glds_duplex
Current duplex state of the interface. Supported values
are GLD_DUPLEX_HALF and GLD_DUPLEX_FULL.
GLD_DUPLEX_UNKNOWN can also be specified.
