Subject: [dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/mlx5: fix file path location of HW counters
Date: Wed, 15 Jul 2020 13:40:04 +0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200715104004.79574-1-shys@mellanox.com> (raw)

When debugging performance of a DPDK application the user may
need to view the different statistics of DPDK(for example out_of_buffer)
This can be enabled by using testpmd command 'show port xstats
<port_id>' for example.

The current implementation assumes legacy mode in which the
are at <ibdev_path>/<port_id>/hw_counters/<file_name>.
In switchdev mode the counters file is located right after the device
name, hence resides at <ibdev_path>/hw_counters.

The fix tries to open the path in the second location after a failure
to open the file from the first location.

Fixes: 9c0a9eed37f1 ("net/mlx5: switch to the names in the shared IB context")
