       smcd-stats - Print statistics about SMC-D usage

       smcr-stats - Print statistics about SMC-R usage


       smcd [ OPTIONS ] stats  { COMMAND | help }

       smcr [ OPTIONS ] stats  { COMMAND | help }


       The smcd stats and smcr stats commands display statistics about SMC-D and SMC-R,
       respectively. Data includes number of connections, number of failed connections, buffer
       information, and special calls.  Statistics are collected at various data points in the
       smc kernel module.  Therefore, minor inconsistencies in the data can occur and are to be


       show (default)
              Display statistics on respective SMC mode usage. Values displayed are cumulative
              since last reset, unless option -a/--absolute is specified.

       reset  Display current statistics and reset all counters to zero.

       json   Display current statistics in JSON format.


       -d, --details
              Display additional fields and information in the output.

       -a, --absolute
              Display values since smc module load, ignoring any resets.


       The -d/--details option displays a number of additional fields as indicated in the
       following.  It also breaks up a number of counters in section Connections Summary into
       separate counts for client and server.

   Total connections handled
       Total number of connections handled by the SMC module. Includes TCP fallback connections
       as well as handshake errors.

   SMC connections
       Number of connections that successfully entered the respective SMC mode.  -d/--details
       breaks up connections by SMC versions.

   Handshake errors
       Number of connections that failed due to errors during the handshaking phase, e.g. peer no
       longer responding.

   Avg requests per SMC conn
       Average number of requests sent and received (including special socket calls) per SMC

   TCP fallback
       Number of connections that fell back to TCP/IP.

   Data transmitted
       Amount of data sent (TX) or received (RX) in Bytes.

   Total requests
       Total number of individual send (TX) or receive (RX) requests handled.  Includes requests
       that ended with errors or did not transfer any data.

   Buffer full
       Number of occurrences where the respective send buffer (TX) could not contain all data to
       be sent, or did not contain as much data as requested in a receive call (RX).

   Buffer full (remote) (--details only)
       Number of occurrences where the peer's receive buffer was exceeded by writing data. That
       is, requests that fill the buffer up to the last bit are not included in the count.

   Buffer too small (--details only)
       Number of occurrences where a send request was larger than the local send buffer's total

   Buffer too small (remote) (--details only)
       Number of occurrences where a send request exceeded the total capacity of the peer's
       receive buffer.

   Buffer downgrades (--details only)
       Number of occurrences where a buffer of the requested size could not be allocated for a
       new connection, and a smaller buffer was used.

   Buffer reuses (--details only)
       Number of occurrences where a buffer was provided as requested for a new connection by
       reusing a buffer from a previous connection.

       Histogram of buffer sizes for all connections, including buffer downgrades and buffer
       reuses.  The histogram scale presents exact buffer sizes.

       Histogram of request sizes. The histogram scale includes upper boundaries of request
       sizes. Counts reflect requested send sizes for TX, and actual receive sizes for RX.
       Difference to Total requests is due to requests not transferring any data and/or erroneous

   Special socket calls
       Summarizes the total number of sockets calls that require special handling in SMC.  To
       categorize these calls into individual counters as follows, use the -d/--details option.

       cork   Counts occurrences of sockopt TCP_CORK enablements. That is, does not reflect the
              number of send requests with TCP_CORK enabled.

              Counts occurrences of sockopt TCP_NODELAY enablements. That is, does not reflect
              the number of send requests with TCP_CORK enabled.

              Counts occurrences of the AF_SMC implementation of the sendpage call.

       splice Counts number of calls of the splice() system call.

       urgent data
              Counts number of send and receive calls with MSG_OOB set.
