If you're talking per-socket SNMP counters, then that could work.
General protocol-wide counters would not help much, at least
in my case.
Why not? If you know where the drops are occurring, what else
do you need to know?
I need to account for packets on a per-session basis, where a
session endpoint is a UDP port. So, knowing global protocol numbers is
good, but it is not very useful for the detailed accounting I
need. I could also use per-socket TCP counters, like re-transmits,
etc. I have not looked to see if they are already there
