telemetry has support for fetching port based stats
from metrics library.

Metrics library also has global stats which are
not fetched by telemetry, so extend telemetry to
fetch the global metrics.

Hi Reshma, Kevin,

Not related to this patch, but when telemetry library enabled, it is causing
some warnings [1] with gcc9

The [-Waddress-of-packed-member] warnings already disable for gcc, but you need
following update to "lib/librte_telemetry/Makefile":
 -CFLAGS += -I$(SRCDIR)
 +CFLAGS += $(WERROR_FLAGS) -I$(SRCDIR)

Can you please take care of this?

Sure, I'll look into it. Thanks.

Hi Reshma, 
I am still seeing build issue when rebasing to this : ie. checking uint32_t is negative in rte_telemetry.c:558
Thanks
Nic

Hi,

WERROR_FLAGS is missing in the make file so we missed to see these errors, me and Kevin are looking into this. Kevin will send the patch.

Thanks,
