* kstat structure and locking strategy
* Each kstat consists of a header section (a kstat_t) and a data section.
* The system maintains a set of kstats, protected by kstat_chain_lock.
* kstat_chain_lock protects all additions to/deletions from this set,
* as well as all changes to kstat headers. kstat data sections are
* *optionally* protected by the per-kstat ks_lock. If ks_lock is non-NULL,
* kstat clients (e.g. /dev/kstat) will acquire this lock for all of their
* operations on that kstat. It is up to the kstat provider to decide whether
* guaranteeing consistent data to kstat clients is sufficiently important
* to justify the locking cost. Note, however, that most statistic updates
* already occur under one of the provider's mutexes, so if the provider sets
* ks_lock to point to that mutex, then kstat data locking is free.
* NOTE: variable-size kstats MUST employ kstat data locking, to prevent
* data-size races with kstat clients.
* NOTE: ks_lock is really of type (kmutex_t *); it is declared as (void *)
* in the kstat header so that users don't have to be exposed to all of the
* kernel's lock-related data structures.

* kstat time
* All times associated with kstats (e.g. creation time, snapshot time,
* kstat_timer_t and kstat_io_t timestamps, etc.) are 64-bit nanosecond values,
* as returned by gethrtime(). The accuracy of these timestamps is machine
* dependent, but the precision (units) is the same across all platforms.
* kstat identity (KID)
* Each kstat is assigned a unique KID (kstat ID) when it is added to the
* global kstat chain. The KID is used as a cookie by /dev/kstat to
* request information about the corresponding kstat. There is also
* an identity associated with the entire kstat chain, kstat_chain_id,
* which is bumped each time a kstat is added or deleted. /dev/kstat uses
* the chain ID to detect changes in the kstat chain (e.g., a new disk
* coming online) between ioctl()s.
* kstat module, kstat instance
* ks_module and ks_instance contain the name and instance of the module
* that created the kstat. In cases where there can only be one instance,
* ks_instance is 0. The kernel proper (/kernel/unix) uses "unix" as its
* module name.
* kstat name
* ks_name gives a meaningful name to a kstat. The full kstat namespace
* is, so the name only need be unique within a
* module. kstat_create() will fail if you try to create a kstat with
* an already-used (ks_module, ks_instance, ks_name) triplet. Spaces are
* allowed in kstat names, but strongly discouraged, since they hinder
* awk-style processing at user level.
* kstat type
* The kstat mechanism provides several flavors of kstat data, defined
* below. The "raw" kstat type is just treated as an array of bytes; you
* can use this to export any kind of data you want.
* Some kstat types allow multiple data structures per kstat, e.g.
* KSTAT_TYPE_NAMED; others do not. This is part of the spec for each
* kstat data type.
* User-level tools should *not* rely on the #define KSTAT_NUM_TYPES. To
* get this information, read out the standard system kstat "kstat_types".
#define KSTAT_TYPE_RAW 0 /* can be anything */
/* ks_ndata >= 1 */
#define KSTAT_TYPE_NAMED 1 /* name/value pair */
/* ks_ndata >= 1 */
#define KSTAT_TYPE_INTR 2 /* interrupt statistics */
/* ks_ndata == 1 */
#define KSTAT_TYPE_IO 3 /* I/O statistics */
/* ks_ndata == 1 */
#define KSTAT_TYPE_TIMER 4 /* event timer */
/* ks_ndata >= 1 */
* kstat class
* Each kstat can be characterized as belonging to some broad class
* of statistics, e.g. disk, tape, net, vm, streams, etc. This field
* can be used as a filter to extract related kstats. The following
* values are currently in use: disk, tape, net, controller, vm, kvm,
* hat, streams, kstat, and misc. (The kstat class encompasses things
* like kstat_types.)
* kstat flags
* Any of the following flags may be passed to kstat_create(). They are
* all zero by default.
* Tells kstat_create() not to allocate memory for the
* kstat data section; instead, you will set the ks_data
* field to point to the data you wish to export. This
* provides a convenient way to export existing data
* structures.
* The size of the kstat you are creating will vary over time.
* For example, you may want to use the kstat mechanism to
* export a linked list. NOTE: The kstat framework does not
* manage the data section, so all variable-size kstats must be
* virtual kstats. Moreover, variable-size kstats MUST employ
* kstat data locking to prevent data-size races with kstat
* clients. See the section on "kstat snapshot" for details.
* Makes the kstat's data section writable by root.
* The ks_snapshot routine (see below) does not need to check for
* this; permission checking is handled in the kstat driver.
* Indicates that this kstat is to be persistent over time.
* For persistent kstats, kstat_delete() simply marks the
* kstat as dormant; a subsequent kstat_create() reactivates
* the kstat. This feature is provided so that statistics
* are not lost across driver close/open (e.g., raw disk I/O
* on a disk with no mounted partitions.)
* NOTE: Persistent kstats cannot be virtual, since ks_data
* points to garbage as soon as the driver goes away.
* The following flags are maintained by the kstat framework:
* For persistent kstats, indicates that the kstat is in the
* dormant state (e.g., the corresponding device is closed).
* This flag is set when a kstat is in a transitional state,
* e.g. between kstat_create() and kstat_install().
* kstat clients must not attempt to access the kstat's data
* if this flag is set.
#define KSTAT_FLAG_VAR_SIZE 0x02
* Dynamic update support
* The kstat mechanism allows for an optional ks_update function to update
* kstat data. This is useful for drivers where the underlying device
* keeps cheap hardware stats, but extraction is expensive. Instead of
* constantly keeping the kstat data section up to date, you can supply a
* ks_update function which updates the kstat's data section on demand.
* To take advantage of this feature, simply set the ks_update field before
* calling kstat_install().
* The ks_update function, if supplied, must have the following structure:
* int
* foo_kstat_update(kstat_t *ksp, int rw)
* {
* if (rw == KSTAT_WRITE) {
* ... update the native stats from ksp->ks_data;
* return EACCES if you don't support this
* } else {
* ... update ksp->ks_data from the native stats
* }
* }
* The ks_update return codes are: 0 for success, EACCES if you don't allow
* KSTAT_WRITE, and EIO for any other type of error.
* In general, the ks_update function may need to refer to provider-private
* data; for example, it may need a pointer to the provider's raw statistics.
* The ks_private field is available for this purpose. Its use is entirely
* at the provider's discretion.
* All variable-size kstats MUST supply a ks_update routine, which computes
* and sets ks_data_size (and ks_ndata if that is meaningful), since these
* are needed to perform kstat snapshots (see below).
* No kstat locking should be done inside the ks_update routine. The caller
* will already be holding the kstat's ks_lock (to ensure consistent data).
#define KSTAT_READ 0
#define KSTAT_WRITE 1
* Kstat snapshot
* In order to get a consistent view of a kstat's data, clients must obey
* the kstat's locking strategy. However, these clients may need to perform
* operations on the data which could cause a fault (e.g. copyout()), or
* operations which are simply expensive. Doing so could cause deadlock
* (e.g. if you're holding a disk's kstat lock which is ultimately required
* to resolve a copyout() fault), performance degradation (since the providers'
* activity is serialized at the kstat lock), device timing problems, etc.
* To avoid these problems, kstat data is provided via snapshots. Taking
* a snapshot is a simple process: allocate a wired-down kernel buffer,
* acquire the kstat's data lock, copy the data into the buffer ("take the
* snapshot"), and release the lock. This ensures that the kstat's data lock
* will be held as briefly as possible, and that no faults will occur while
* the lock is held.
* Normally, the snapshot is taken by default_kstat_snapshot(), which
* timestamps the data (sets ks_snaptime), copies it, and does a little
* massaging to deal with incomplete transactions on i/o kstats. However,
* this routine only works for kstats with contiguous data (the typical case).
* If you create a kstat whose data is, say, a linked list, you must provide
* your own ks_snapshot routine. The routine you supply must have the
* following prototype (replace "foo" with something appropriate):
* int foo_kstat_snapshot(kstat_t *ksp, void *buf, int rw);
* The minimal snapshot routine -- one which copies contiguous data that
* doesn't need any massaging -- would be this:
* ksp->ks_snaptime = gethrtime();
* if (rw == KSTAT_WRITE)
* bcopy(buf, ksp->ks_data, ksp->ks_data_size);
* else
* bcopy(ksp->ks_data, buf, ksp->ks_data_size);
* return (0);
* A more illuminating example is taking a snapshot of a linked list:
* ksp->ks_snaptime = gethrtime();
* if (rw == KSTAT_WRITE)
* return (EACCES); ... See below ...
* for (foo = first_foo; foo; foo = foo->next) {
* bcopy((char *) foo, (char *) buf, sizeof (struct foo));
* buf = ((struct foo *) buf) + 1;
* }
* return (0);
* In the example above, we have decided that we don't want to allow
* KSTAT_WRITE access, so we return EACCES if this is attempted.
* The key points are:
* (1) ks_snaptime must be set (via gethrtime()) to timestamp the data.
* (2) Data gets copied from the kstat to the buffer on KSTAT_READ,
* and from the buffer to the kstat on KSTAT_WRITE.
* (3) ks_snapshot return values are: 0 for success, EACCES if you
* don't allow KSTAT_WRITE, and EIO for any other type of error.
* Named kstats (see section on "Named statistics" below) containing long
* strings (KSTAT_DATA_STRING) need special handling. The kstat driver
* assumes that all strings are copied into the buffer after the array of
* named kstats, and the pointers (KSTAT_NAMED_STR_PTR()) are updated to point
* into the copy within the buffer. The default snapshot routine does this,
* but overriding routines should contain at least the following:
* if (rw == KSTAT_READ) {
* kstat_named_t *knp = buf;
* char *end = knp + ksp->ks_ndata;
* uint_t i;
* ... Do the regular copy ...
* bcopy(ksp->ks_data, buf, sizeof (kstat_named_t) * ksp->ks_ndata);
* for (i = 0; i < ksp->ks_ndata; i++, knp++) {
* if (knp[i].data_type == KSTAT_DATA_STRING &&
* bcopy(KSTAT_NAMED_STR_PTR(knp), end,
* KSTAT_NAMED_STR_PTR(knp) = end;
* }
* }
* Named statistics.

* This method is generalizable to measuring residency
* in any defined system: instead of queue lengths, think
* of "outstanding RPC calls to server X".
* A large number of I/O subsystems have at least two basic
* "lists" of transactions they manage: one for transactions
* that have been accepted for processing but for which processing
* has yet to begin, and one for transactions which are actively
* being processed (but not done). For this reason, two cumulative
* time statistics are defined here: wait (pre-service) time,
* and run (service) time.
* All times are 64-bit nanoseconds (hrtime_t), as returned by

* Since kstat_waitq_exit() is typically followed immediately
* by kstat_runq_enter(), there is a single kstat_waitq_to_runq()
* function which performs both operations. This is a performance
* win since only one timestamp is required.
* In some instances, it may be necessary to move a request from
* the run queue back to the wait queue, e.g. for write throttling.
* For these situations, call kstat_runq_back_to_waitq().
* These fields should never be updated by any other means.

* Adding and deleting kstats.
* The typical sequence to add a kstat is:
* ksp = kstat_create(module, instance, name, class, type, ndata, flags);
* if (ksp) {
* ... provider initialization, if necessary
* kstat_install(ksp);
* }
* There are three logically distinct steps here:
* Step 1: System Initialization (kstat_create)
* kstat_create() performs system initialization. kstat_create()
* allocates memory for the entire kstat (header plus data), initializes
* all header fields, initializes the data section to all zeroes, assigns
* a unique KID, and puts the kstat onto the system's kstat chain.
* The returned kstat is marked invalid (KSTAT_FLAG_INVALID is set),
* because the provider (caller) has not yet had a chance to initialize
* the data section.
* By default, kstats are exported to all zones on the system. A kstat may be
* created via kstat_create_zone() to specify a zone to which the statistics
* should be exported. kstat_zone_add() may be used to specify additional
* zones to which the statistics are to be exported.
* Step 2: Provider Initialization
* The provider performs any necessary initialization of the data section,
* e.g. setting the name fields in a KSTAT_TYPE_NAMED. Virtual kstats set
* the ks_data field at this time. The provider may also set the ks_update,
* ks_snapshot, ks_private, and ks_lock fields if necessary.
* Step 3: Installation (kstat_install)
* Once the kstat is completely initialized, kstat_install() clears the
* INVALID flag, thus making the kstat accessible to the outside world.
* kstat_install() also clears the DORMANT flag for persistent kstats.
* Removing a kstat from the system
* kstat_delete(ksp) removes ksp from the kstat chain and frees all
* associated system resources. NOTE: When you call kstat_delete(),
* you must NOT be holding that kstat's ks_lock. Otherwise, you may
* deadlock with a kstat reader.
* Persistent kstats
* From the provider's point of view, persistence is transparent. The only
* difference between ephemeral (normal) kstats and persistent kstats
* is that you pass KSTAT_FLAG_PERSISTENT to kstat_create(). Magically,
* this has the effect of making your data visible even when you're
* not home. Persistence is important to tools like iostat, which want
* to get a meaningful picture of disk activity. Without persistence,
* raw disk i/o statistics could never accumulate: they would come and
* go with each open/close of the raw device.
* The magic of persistence works by slightly altering the behavior of
* kstat_create() and kstat_delete(). The first call to kstat_create()
* creates a new kstat, as usual. However, kstat_delete() does not
* actually delete the kstat: it performs one final update of the data
* (i.e., calls the ks_update routine), marks the kstat as dormant, and
* sets the ks_lock, ks_update, ks_private, and ks_snapshot fields back
* to their default values (since they might otherwise point to garbage,
* e.g. if the provider is going away). kstat clients can still access
* the dormant kstat just like a live kstat; they just continue to see
* the final data values as long as the kstat remains dormant.
* All subsequent kstat_create() calls simply find the already-existing,
* dormant kstat and return a pointer to it, without altering any fields.
* The provider then performs its usual initialization sequence, and
* calls kstat_install(). kstat_install() uses the old data values to
* initialize the native data (i.e., ks_update is called with KSTAT_WRITE),
* thus making it seem like you were never gone.
