> Subject: [PATCH v7 0/9] app/proc-info: improve debug of proc-info tool
> This patch adds new debug functions to existing proc-info tool.
> DPDK proc-info tool is been widely used as secondary process to collect stats for
> any primary process. But these are limited to DPDK NIC ports and basic memory
> This patch tries to address the short coming by adding debug for port, traffic
> manager, crypto, ring and mempool. With these additional information in tool
> will be able to deliver helpful data to debug issues and performance variance.
> With the following patch set debug data has been collected from customers
> using DPDK instances. Analysing the information helped to suggest the next
> debug steps and solutions for fixing the issues.
> Next Steps
> - add event dev debug information.
> - enhance iter_mempool for INLINE crypto entries.
> - add debug for libraries like hash and acl.
> - explore debug possibility for ring and list.
> - add links and reference to 'how to guide' for 'debug and troubleshoot'.
> Patch set Information
> Patch includes set of 9 patches:
> * 0 : to introduce the debug function enhancement for proc-info
> * 1 : MACRO and help usage for new functions
> * 2 : string compare for new functions
> * 3 : invocation for the new prototypes
> * 4 : show port
> * 5 : show tm
> * 6 : show crypto
> * 7 : ring element debug
> * 8 : mempool element debug
> * 9 : iterate mempoool elements
9th patch in this set is doc. So above info need to be corrected.
if you are addressing my earlier comment of separating out mempool element iteration changes in to separate new patch 9/10 .Please keep my ack in next version
