    Hi,

    I am newbie developing a routing application which
    needs three features;

    1. if the fib lookup fails, my application needs to know about using
    preferably
    netlink, -- any direction to some sample code or files in the kernel???

    2. I need a counter recording the hits a fib entry is chosen for
    packet forwarding. Is it the function fn_trie_lookup in file
    /net/ipv4/fib_trie.c i need to modify and look into?
    -- ?? and therefore is it safe to add a int counter in fib_node w/o
    breaking the build??

    2. need to read the entire fib, i.e dump the fib to the user space,
    -- again any direction to some sample code etc..
    i have seen a fn in /source/net/ipv4/fib_frontend.c , which looks like
    is supposed to dump the routes but not sure how to use it..

    line no.581 int inet_dump_fib(struct sk_buff *skb, struct
    netlink_callback *cb)
    Also;
    fn_trie_dump() in /net/ipv4/fib_trie.c


    This could be an inappropriate list for the above questions, if it is
    request for
    some direction on the appropriate mailing list

    Appreciate any help.

    Thanking you,
    Sujay
