+# 1. Introduction
+This document describes the overall requirements for virtio net device
+improvements for upcoming release 1.4. Some of these requirements are
+interrelated and influence the interface design, hence reviewing them
+together is desired while updating the virtio net interface.
+# 2. Summary
+1. Device counters visible to the driver
+# 3. Requirements
+## 3.1 Device counters
+1. The driver should be able to query the device and/or per vq counters for
+   debugging purpose using a virtqueue directly from driver to device for
+   example using a control vq.
+2. The driver should be able to query which counters are supported using a
+   virtqueue command, for example using an existing control vq.
+3. If this device is migrated between two hosts, the driver should be able
+   get the counter values in the destination host from where it was left
+   off in the source host.
+4. If a virtio device is group member device, a group owner should be able
+   to query all the counter attributes using the administration command which
+   a virtio member device will expose via a virtqueue to the driver.
+4. If a virtio device is a group member device, a group owner should be able
+   to query all of the member device counter attributes and counters via the
+   group owner device.
+### 3.1.1 Per receive queue counters
+1. le64 rx_oversize_pkt_errors: Packet dropped due to receive packet being
+    oversize than the buffer size
+2. le64 rx_no_buffer_pkt_errors: Packet dropped due to unavailability of the
+    buffer in the receive queue
+3. le64 rx_gso_pkts: Packets treated as receive GSO sequence by the device
+4. le64 rx_pkts: Total packets received by the device
+### 3.1.2 Per transmit queue counters
+1. le64 tx_gso_pkts: Packets send as transmit GSO sequence
+2. le64 tx_pkts: Total packets send by the device
+### 3.1.3 More counters
+More counters discussed in [1].
