[Qemu-block] [RFC v2 0/4] Rolling statistics utilities

From: Dr. David Alan Gilbert (git)
Subject: [Qemu-block] [RFC v2 0/4] Rolling statistics utilities
Date: Wed, 4 Mar 2015 10:29:35 +0000

From: "Dr. David Alan Gilbert" <address@hidden>

  This is an attempt at a generic rolling statistics utility to
allow data (e.g. bandwidth usage, times etc) to be collected
easily.  They hold some basic values (min/max/mean/weighted mean)
and the last 'n' raw values.    I'd like to use this
maybe with fault-tolerance code and want to read the means
within qemu but also want to provide the values to higher levels
of the stack and to watch what is going on.

  This version is lightly tested, and I'm still more interested
in if it's the right shape/idea rather than a detailed review.

  I've included an example use in watching the 'expected downtime'
in migration; rather than the current single value we get:

expected downtime stats: Min/Max: 222, 1634 Mean: 983.8 (Weighted:
1005.1253) Count: 141 Values: address@hidden, address@hidden, address@hidden,
address@hidden, address@hidden

        "expected-downtime-stats": {
            "min": 222,
            "count": 378,
            "mean": 1100.2,
            "max": 1942,
            "weighted-mean": 1115.710848,
            "values": [
                    "tag": 39380740,
                    "value": 1118
                    "tag": 39380842,
                    "value": 953
                    "tag": 39380945,
                    "value": 1017
                    "tag": 39381048,
                    "value": 1336
                    "tag": 39381150,
                    "value": 1077


RFC v2
  Wired up a qapi type so that the output is done via qapi; it
  still seems best to have a separate type with the data and
  the locking etc.
  Although that has lost my test harness that was built on my
  manual formatters.
