Retransmissions In




I can see the metric “Retransmissions Out” at TCP Metric Totals.
But I can’t see the metric “Retransmissions In” and I can’t find that in Metric Catalog too.

Could you let me know why there is not the metric “Retransmissions In” in EDA?

Hi, Younghyun.

A device receiving retransmissions, where those retransmissions do not represent stalls in traffic (RTOs) or traffic drops, is informational but not actionable. In developing our TCP metrics, we opted to record drops and RTOs rather than retransmissions.
