I would be interested why it did not show up. I'm not using Solaris
regularly, but I would look at the values for these stats values (picked
from the output of netstat -s)


Probe that fires whenever an input IP datagram is discarded for reasons
unrelated to the packet (for example, for lack of buffer space). This
probe does not fire for any datagram discarded while awaiting


Probe that fires whenever a UDP datagram is received, but subsequently
dropped due to lack of buffer space.
