+<h2 id="CoupledStatistics">Coupled Statistics</h2>
+<p>Use coupled statistics for quantities that are related and therefore must be 
+updated jointly. </p>
+<p>As a very simple example, suppose you have three statistics: <code>sum</code>,
<code>part_1</code>, 
+and <code>part_2</code>. They must always preserve the relationship that <code>sum
= part_1 
++ part_2</code>. If you update <code>part_1</code> without updating <code>sum</code>
at the same time, 
+then the equation becomes untrue. Therefore, the statistics are said to be 
+<em>coupled</em>. </p>
+<p>The mechanism for updating coupled statistics jointly is to create local copies

+of global coupled statistics in the routines that modifiy them. When each local 
+copy is updated appropriately, do a global update using <code>TSStatsCoupledUpdate</code>.

+To specify which statistics are related to one another, establish a coupled 
+statistic category and make sure that each coupled statistic belongs to the 
+appropriate category. When it is time to do the global update, specify the 
+category to be updated.</p>
+<p><img alt="[Note]" src="/images/docbook/note.png" /></p>
+<p><strong>Note</strong> </p>
+<p>The local statistic copy must have a duplicate set of statistics as that of 
+the master copy. Local statistics must also be added to the local statistic 
+category in the same order as their master copy counterparts were originally 
+added.</p>
+<p>Below are the steps you need to follow, along with a code example taken from 
+the <code>redirect-1.c</code> sample plugin.</p>
+<h3 id="addcoupledstatistics">To add coupled statistics:</h3>
+<ol>
+<li>
+<p>Declare the global category for your coupled statistics as a global <code>TSCoupledStat</code>

+variable in your plugin.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Declare your coupled statistics as global <code>TSStat</code> variables
in your plugin. </p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>In <code>TSPluginInit</code>, create a new global coupled category using
<code>TSStatCoupledGlobalCategoryCreate</code>. </p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>In <code>TSPluginInit</code>, create new global coupled statistics using
<code>TSStatCoupledGlobalAdd</code>. 
+When you create a new statistic, you need to give it an "external" name that 
+the Traffic Server command line interface (Traffic Line) uses to access the 
+statistic.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>In any routine wherein you want to modify (increment, decrement, or other modification)

+your coupled statistics, declare local copies of the coupled category and coupled 
+statistics.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Create local copies using <code>TSStatCoupledLocalCopyCreate</code>
and <code>TSStatCoupledLocalAdd</code>. </p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Modify the local copies of your statistics. Then call <code>TSStatsCoupledUpdate</code>

+to update the global copies jointly.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>When you are finished, you must destroy all of the local copies in the category

+via <code>TSStatCoupledLocalCopyDestroy</code>.</p>

+<h2 id="AddingStatistics">Adding Statistics</h2>
+<p>This chapter describes how to add statistics to your plugins. Statistics can 
+be coupled or uncoupled; <strong>coupled</strong> statistics are quantities that
are related 
+and must therefore be updated together. The Traffic Server API statistics functions 
+add your plugin's statistics to the Traffic Server statistics system. You can 
+view your plugin statistics as you would any other Traffic Server statistic, 
+using Traffic Line (Traffic Server's command line interface). This chapter 
+contains the following topics:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><a href="#UncoupledStatistics">Uncoupled Statistics</a></p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><a href="coupled-statistics">Coupled Statistics</a></p>

+<li>
+<p><a href="ViewStatsUsingTrafLine.html">Viewing Statistics Using Traffic Line</a></p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<h2 id="UncoupledStatistics">Uncoupled Statistics</h2>
+<p>A statistic is an object of type <code>TSStat</code>. The value of the
statistic is of 
+type <code>TSStatType</code>. The possible <code>TSStatTypes</code>
are:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><code>TSSTAT_TYPE_INT64</code></p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><code>TSSTAT_TYPE_FLOAT</code></p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<p>There is <em>no</em> <code>TSSTAT_TYPE_INT32</code>.</p>
+<p>To add uncoupled statistics, follow the steps below:</p>
+<ol>
+<li>
+<p>Declare your statistic as a global variable in your plugin. For example:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="k">static</span> <span
class="n">TSStat</span> <span class="n">my_statistic</span><span class="p">;</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>In <code>TSPluginInit</code>, create new statistics using <code>TSStatCreate</code>.
+When you create a new statistic, you need to give it an "external" name that 
+the Traffic Server command line interface (Traffic Line) uses to access the 
+statistic. For example:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">my_statistic</span>
<span class="o">=</span> <span class="n">TSStatCreate</span> <span
class="p">(</span><span class="s">&quot;my.statistic&quot;</span><span
class="p">,</span> <span class="n">TSSTAT_TYPE_INT64</span><span class="p">);</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Modify (increment, decrement, or other modification) your statistic in plugin 
+functions.</p>
+</li>
+</ol>

+<h2 id="UnableCompilePlugins">Unable to Compile Plugins</h2>
+<p>The process for compiling a shared library varies with the platform used, so 
+the Traffic Server API includes the <code>tsxs</code> script you can use to create

+shared libraries on all supported Traffic Server platforms.</p>
+<h3 id="Example">Example</h3>
+<p>Assuming the sample program is stored in the file <code>hello-world.c</code>,
you could 
+use the following commands to building a shared library:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>    tsxs -c hello-world.c -o hello-world.so
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>To install this plugin in your <code>plugindir</code> use the equivalent
of sudo on
+your platform to execute:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>    sudo tsxs -o hello-world.so -i
+</pre></div>
   </div>

+<h2 id="UsingDebugTags">Using Debug Tags</h2>
+<p>Use the API <code>void TSDebug (const char *tag, const char *format_str, ...)</code>
+to add traces in your plugin. In this API:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><code>tag</code> is the Traffic Server parameter that enables Traffic
Server to print 
+out <em><code>format_str</code></em></p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><code>...</code> is a variable for <em><code>format_str</code></em></p>
+</li>
+</ul>
+<p>Run Traffic Server with the <code>-Ttag</code> option. For example,
if the tag is
+<code>my-plugin</code>, then the debug output goes to <code>traffic.out.</code>See
below:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>   traffic_server -T&quot;my-plugin&quot;
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>Set the following variables in <code>records.config</code> (in the Traffic
Server <code>config</code> 
+directory):</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>   proxy.config.diags.debug.enabled INT 1
+   proxy.config.diags.debug.tags STRING debug-tag-name
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>In this case, debug output goes to <code>traffic.out</code>.</p>
+<p>Example:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>   <span class="n">TSDebug</span> <span
class="p">(</span><span class="s">&quot;my-plugin&quot;</span><span
class="p">,</span> <span class="s">&quot;Starting my-plugin at %d</span><span
class="se">\n</span><span class="s">&quot;</span><span class="p">,</span>
<span class="n">the_time</span><span class="p">);</span><span class="err">`</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>The statement <code>"Starting my-plugin at &lt;time&gt;"</code>
appears whenever you run Traffic 
+Server with the <code>my-plugin</code> tag:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre>   traffic_server -T&quot;my-plugin&quot;
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<h3 id="OtherUsefulInternalDebugTags">Other Useful Internal Debug Tags</h3>
+<p>Traffic Server provides many debug tags for internal debugging purposes. Some 
+of the useful HTTP debug tags are:</p>
+<ul>
+<li>
+<p><code>http_hdrs</code> - traces all incoming and outgoing HTTP headers.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><code>http.*</code> - traces all the STTP SM debug statements.</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p><code>sdk</code> - gives some warning concerning API usage.</p>
+</li>
+</ul>

+<p>A debugger can set breakpoints in a plugin. Use a Traffic Server debug build 
+and compile the plugin with the <code>-g</code> option. A debugger can also be
used to 
+analyze a core dump. To generate core, set the size limit of the core files 
+in the <code>records.config</code> file to -1 as follows:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">CONFIG</span> <span
class="n">proxy</span><span class="p">.</span><span class="n">config</span><span

+<ul>
+<li>
+<p>Use a Traffic Server debug version.</p>
