Kernel dropped packet analysis

Found a simple method to check for all the packets dropped by kernel.

First you need to install dropwatch with

dnf install dropwatch

and details of the package

Once that is done, you will see the kernel address. How do you map those to kernel functions, refer Get kernel function name from kernel address.
