写在前面

我不是网络专家,只是在经历了多年的生产和测试环境网络问题排查后,不想再得过且过,于是记录下所学到的知识。由于对 TCP 栈的实现了解有限,所以内容仅作参考。

TCP 连接健康的重要性

TCP 连接健康最少包括:

  • TCP 重传统计,这是网络质量的风向标
  • MTU/MSS 大小,拥挤窗口的大小,这是带宽与吞吐的重要指标
  • 各层收发队列与缓存的统计

这个问题在《从性能问题定位,扯到性能模型,再到 TCP - 都微服务云原生了,还学 TCP 干嘛系列 Part 1》中我聊过,不再重复。

如何查看 TCP 连接健康

Linux 的 TCP 连接健康指标有两种:

  • 整机的统计

    聚合了整机(严格来说,是整个 network namespace 或 整个 container) 的网络健康指标。可用 nstat 查看。

  • 每个 TCP 连接的统计

    每个 TCP 连接均在内核中保存了统计数据。可用 ss 查看。

本文只关注 每个 TCP 连接的统计整机的统计 请到 这篇 查看。

容器化时代

了解过 Linux 下容器化原理的同学应该知道,在内核层都是 namespace + cgroup。而上面说的 TCP 连接健康指标,也是 namespace aware 的。即每个 network namespace 独立统计。在容器化时,什么是 namespace aware,什么不是,一定要分清楚。

曾神秘的 ss

相信很多人用过 netstat。但netstat由于在连接量大时性能不佳的问题,已经慢慢由 ss 代替。如果你好奇 ss 的实现原理,那么转到本文的 “原理” 一节。

字段说明

⚠️ 我不是网络专家,以下说明是我最近的一些学习结果,不排除有错。请谨慎使用。

Recv-Q与Send-Q

  • 当socket是listen 状态(eg: ss -lnt)
    Recv-Q: 全连接队列的大小,也就是当前已完成三次握手并等待服务端 accept() 的 TCP 连接
    Send-Q: 全连接最大队列长度
  • 当socket 是非listen 状态(eg: ss -nt)
    Recv-Q: 未被应用进程读取的字节数;
    Send-Q: 已发送但未收到确认的字节数;

Recv-Q

Established: The count of bytes not copied by the user program connected to this socket.

Listening: Since Kernel 2.6.18 this column contains the current syn backlog.

Send-Q

Established: The count of bytes not acknowledged by the remote host.

Listening: Since Kernel 2.6.18 this column contains the maximum size of the syn backlog.

                        bl<back_log>,d<sock_drop>)

          <rmem_alloc>
                 the memory allocated for receiving packet

          <rcv_buf>
                 the total memory can be allocated for receiving
                 packet

          <wmem_alloc>
                 the memory used for sending packet (which has been
                 sent to layer 3)

          <snd_buf>
                 the total memory can be allocated for sending
                 packet

          <fwd_alloc>
                 the memory allocated by the socket as cache, but
                 not used for receiving/sending packet yet. If need
                 memory to send/receive packet, the memory in this
                 cache will be used before allocate additional
                 memory.

          <wmem_queued>
                 The memory allocated for sending packet (which has
                 not been sent to layer 3)

          <ropt_mem>
                 The memory used for storing socket option, e.g.,
                 the key for TCP MD5 signature

          <back_log>
                 The memory used for the sk backlog queue. On a
                 process context, if the process is receiving
                 packet, and a new packet is received, it will be
                 put into the sk backlog queue, so it can be
                 received by the process immediately

          <sock_drop>
                 the number of packets dropped before they are de-
                 multiplexed into the socket

  • skmem_r

    is the actual amount of memory that is allocated, which includes not only user payload (Recv-Q) but also additional memory needed by Linux to process the packet (packet metadata). This is known within the kernel as sk_rmem_alloc.

    如果应用层能及时消费 TCP 内核层接收到的数据,这个数字基本为 0。

    Note that there are other buffers associated with a socket, so skmem_r does not represent the total memory that a socket might have allocated.

  • skmem_rb

    is the maximum amount of memory that could be allocated by the socket for the receive buffer. This is higher than rcv_ssthresh to account for memory needed for packet processing that is not packet data. Autotuning can increase this value (up to tcp_rmem max) based on how fast the L7 application is able to read data from the socket and the RTT of the session. This is known within the kernel as sk_rcvbuf.

rcv_space

          rcv_space:<rcv_space>
                 a helper variable for TCP internal auto tuning
                 socket receive buffer

https://blog.cloudflare.com/optimizing-tcp-for-high-throughput-and-low-latency/#:~:text=is%20Linux%20autotuning.-,Linux%20autotuning,-Linux%20autotuning%20is

rcv_space is the high water mark of the rate of the local application reading from the receive buffer during any RTT. This is used internally within the kernel to adjust sk_rcvbuf.

http://darenmatthews.com/blog/?p=2106#:~:text=%E2%80%9D-,rcv_space,-is%20used%20in

rcv_space is used in TCP’s internal auto-tuning to grow socket buffers based on how much data the kernel estimates the sender can send. It will change over the life of any connection. It’s measured in bytes. You can see where the value is populated by reading the tcp_get_info() function in the kernel.

The value is not measuring the actual socket buffer size, which is what net.ipv4.tcp_rmem controls. You’d need to call getsockopt() within the application to check the buffer size. You can see current buffer usage with the Recv-Q and Send-Q fields of ss.
Note that if the buffer size is set with setsockopt(), the value returned with getsockopt() is always double the size requested to allow for overhead. This is described in man 7 socket.

rcv_ssthresh

https://blog.cloudflare.com/optimizing-tcp-for-high-throughput-and-low-latency/#:~:text=is%20Linux%20autotuning.-,Linux%20autotuning,-Linux%20autotuning%20is

rcv_ssthresh is the window clamp, a.k.a. the maximum receive window size. This value is not known to the sender. The sender receives only the current window size, via the TCP header field. A closely-related field in the kernel, tp->window_clamp, is the maximum window size allowable based on the amount of available memory. rcv_ssthresh is the receiver-side slow-start threshold value.

pmtu

通过 Path MTU Discovery 发现到的对端 MTU 。Path MTU value.

这里有几点注意的:

  • Linux 会把每个测量过的对端 IP 的 MTU 值缓存到 Route Cache,这可以避免相同对端重复走 Path MTU Discovery 流程
  • Path MTU Discovery 在 Linux 中有两种不同的实现方法
    • 传统基于 ICMP 的 RFC1191
      • 但现在很多路由和 NAT 不能正确处理 ICMP

timer 定时器

初入門 TCP 实现的同学,很难想像, TCP 除了输入与输出事件驱动外,其实还由很多定时器去驱动的。ss 可以查看这些定时器。

              Show timer information. For TCP protocol, the output
              format is:

              timer:(<timer_name>,<expire_time>,<retrans>)

              <timer_name>
                     the name of the timer, there are five kind of timer
                     names:

                     on : means one of these timers: TCP retrans timer,
                     TCP early retrans timer and tail loss probe timer

                     keepalive: tcp keep alive timer

                     timewait: timewait stage timer

                     persist: zero window probe timer

                     unknown: none of the above timers

              <expire_time>
                     how long time the timer will expire

Other

app_limited

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/542712/detailed-output-of-ss-command

limit TCP flows with application-limiting in request or responses. 我理解是,这是个 boolean,如果 ss 显示了 app_limited 这个标记,表示应用未完全使用所有 TCP 发送带宽,即,连接还有余力发送更多。

  tcpi_delivery_rate: The most recent goodput, as measured by
    tcp_rate_gen(). If the socket is limited by the sending
    application (e.g., no data to send), it reports the highest
    measurement instead of the most recent. The unit is bytes per
    second (like other rate fields in tcp_info).

  tcpi_delivery_rate_app_limited: A boolean indicating if the goodput
    was measured when the socket's throughput was limited by the
    sending application.

https://github.com/shemminger/iproute2/blob/f8decf82af07591833f89004e9b72cc39c1b5c52/misc/ss.c#L3138

特别操作

specified network namespace

指定 ss 用的 network namespace 文件,如 ss -N /proc/322/ns/net

       -N NSNAME, --net=NSNAME
              Switch to the specified network namespace name.

kill socket

强制关闭 TCP 连接。

       -K, --kill
              Attempts to forcibly close sockets. This option displays
              sockets that are successfully closed and silently skips
              sockets that the kernel does not support closing. It
              supports IPv4 and IPv6 sockets only.

    The fields of struct inet_diag_req_v2 are as follows:

       idiag_ext
          This is a set of flags defining what kind of extended
          information to report.  Each requested kind of information
          is reported back as a netlink attribute as described
          below:

          INET_DIAG_TOS
                 The payload associated with this attribute is a
                 __u8 value which is the TOS of the socket.

          INET_DIAG_TCLASS
                 The payload associated with this attribute is a
                 __u8 value which is the TClass of the socket.  IPv6
                 sockets only.  For LISTEN and CLOSE sockets, this
                 is followed by INET_DIAG_SKV6ONLY attribute with
                 associated __u8 payload value meaning whether the
                 socket is IPv6-only or not.

          INET_DIAG_MEMINFO
                 The payload associated with this attribute is
                 represented in the following structure:

                     struct inet_diag_meminfo {
                         __u32 idiag_rmem;
                         __u32 idiag_wmem;
                         __u32 idiag_fmem;
                         __u32 idiag_tmem;
                     };

                 The fields of this structure are as follows:

                 idiag_rmem
                        The amount of data in the receive queue.

                 idiag_wmem
                        The amount of data that is queued by TCP but
                        not yet sent.

                 idiag_fmem
                        The amount of memory scheduled for future
                        use (TCP only).

                 idiag_tmem
                        The amount of data in send queue.

          INET_DIAG_SKMEMINFO
                 The payload associated with this attribute is an
                 array of __u32 values described below in the
                 subsection "Socket memory information".

          INET_DIAG_INFO
                 The payload associated with this attribute is
                 specific to the address family.  For TCP sockets,
                 it is an object of type struct tcp_info.

          INET_DIAG_CONG
                 The payload associated with this attribute is a
                 string that describes the congestion control
                 algorithm used.  For TCP sockets only.


​ idiag_timer
​ For TCP sockets, this field describes the type of timer
​ that is currently active for the socket. It is set to one
​ of the following constants:

​ 0 no timer is active
​ 1 a retransmit timer
​ 2 a keep-alive timer
​ 3 a TIME_WAIT timer
​ 4 a zero window probe timer

​ For non-TCP sockets, this field is set to 0.

idiag_retrans
For idiag_timer values 1, 2, and 4, this field contains
the number of retransmits. For other idiag_timer values,
this field is set to 0.

       idiag_expires
              For TCP sockets that have an active timer, this field
              describes its expiration time in milliseconds.  For other
              sockets, this field is set to 0.

       idiag_rqueue
              For listening sockets: the number of pending connections.

              For other sockets: the amount of data in the incoming
              queue.

       idiag_wqueue
              For listening sockets: the backlog length.

              For other sockets: the amount of memory available for
              sending.
       idiag_uid
              This is the socket owner UID.

              This is the socket inode number.
              
   Socket memory information
       The payload associated with UNIX_DIAG_MEMINFO and
       INET_DIAG_SKMEMINFO netlink attributes is an array of the
       following __u32 values:
