FS#559 - No Ethernet statistics on ag71xx

On WNDR3700v2:

  # ethtool -i eth1 | head -n 2
  driver: ag71xx
  version: 0.5.35
  # ethtool -S eth1
  no stats available

The only statistics available are the ones provided by `ifconfig`, but I’m not sure whether that is accurate — I’m not seeing any drops even under load.

Note that statistics are available on the switch (through `swconfig show`), it’s only the SoC’s interface that’s impacted.

(While I’m at it, the driver is incomplete in other ways — there’s no support for Pause frames or for scatter-gather, although a quick read of the datasheet indicates that it should be possible to implement these features. I’m not sure that’s important, though.)

Some stats will be available in debugfs when the following options are enabled


But it's true that relevant ethtool interface is not implemented yet.

Please leave open, even though nobody is working on it. This is a confirmed issue.

Okay, I see. There is actually a “Feature Request” Task Type.

It’s a request for a feature that is good-to-have, but also seems to be not a priority for people viewing the tasklist thus far

I closed it mainly because “issues” like these will very likely rot in the tracker over time and accumulate to a point to make real bugs a minority. That will frustrate people I think.

For ethX interface, we can use CPU port statistics.
If this solution is correct, I can try to implement it later.
