Subject[PATCH v3 5/5] Documentation/ABI: Add details of PCI AER statistics
From
Add the PCI AER statistics details to
Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-bus-pci-devices-aer_stats
and provide a pointer to it in
Documentation/PCI/pcieaer-howto.txt

+==========================
+PCIe Device AER statistics
+==========================
+These attributes show up under all the devices that are AER capable. These
+statistical counters indicate the errors "as seen/reported by the device".
+Note that this may mean that if an end point is causing problems, the AER
+counters may increment at its link partner (e.g. root port) because the
+errors will be "seen" / reported by the link partner and not the the
+problematic end point itself (which may report all counters as 0 as it never
+saw any problems).

+Description: Breakdown of correctable errors seen and reported by this

+ in dev_breakdown_correctable may exceed dev_total_cor_errs
+ because a device is allowed to merge multiple correctable and
+ send a single ERR_COR for them (which is what dev_total_cor_errs
+ counts). A sample output for this attribute looks like this:
+-----------------------------------------
+Receiver Error = 174
+Bad TLP = 19
+Bad DLLP = 3
+RELAY_NUM Rollover = 0
+Replay Timer Timeout = 1
+Advisory Non-Fatal = 0
+Corrected Internal Error = 0
+Header Log Overflow = 0

+ total of all errors in dev_breakdown_uncorrectable may exceed

+ device is allowed to merge multiple errors at the same severity
+ and send a single ERR_FATAL/ERR_NON_FATAL for them.
+ A sample output for this attribute looks like this:

+============================
+PCIe Rootport AER statistics
+============================
+These attributes showup under only the rootports that are AER capable. These
+indicate the number of error messages as "reported to" the rootport. Please note
+that the rootports also transmit (internally) the ERR_* messages for errors seen
+by the internal rootport PCI device, so these counters includes them and are
+thus cumulative of all the error messages on the PCI hierarchy originating
+at that root port.

+When PCIe AER errors are captured, the counters / statistics are also exposed
+in form of sysfs attributes which are documented at
