An interrupt is a hard interrupt (sourced from the hardware device itself), a soft interrupt (induced by the system through the use of some system interrupt source), a watchdog interrupt (induced by a periodic timer call), spurious (an interrupt entry point was entered but there was no interrupt to service), or multiple service (an interrupt was detected and serviced just prior to returning from any of the other types).
Drivers generally report only claimed hard interrupts and soft interrupts from their handlers, but measurement of the spurious class of interrupts is useful for auto-vectored devices in order to pinpoint any interrupt latency problems in a particular system configuration.
Devices that have more than one interrupt of the same type should use multiple structures.
ulong_t intrs[KSTAT_NUM_INTRS]; /* interrupt counters */
The only member exposed to drivers is the intrs member. This field is an array of counters. The driver must use the appropriate counter in the array based on the type of interrupt condition.
The following indexes are supported:
