I would like to submit a patch that adds a /proc file to the kernel which
monitors the health of active TCP connections. It does this by counting
the number of duplicate ACKs sent out, among other things.
I have a website detailing the exact metrics used and why I choose them:
I would rather that you add this to the tcp_diag facility in
2.4.x instead of creating yet another proc file. tcp_diag is
designed perfectly for fetching the kind of information your
TCP health monitor is providing.
This is irregardless of whether your selection of health metrics is
sound or not, I have not looked into this part at all. But it will
have to be discussed before we think about adding the changes.
