Description of problem:
[SR-IOV] - Remove statistics tab for 'pci-passthrough' vNIC types.
I'm reporting this bug in order to decide if we want to remove the statistics tab for 'pci-passthrough' vNIC types.
- Today, if we had a regular vNIC type(virt i/o for example) with regular profile and we have a running VM using this vNIC, it will report statistics for this vNIC. If we will shut down the VM(hotunplug/plug not supported for sr-iov) and then will update the vNIC profile with 'passthrough' one and with 'pci-passthrough' type and then run the VM, the statistics tab will continue to display and report the statistics of the regular vNIC type and i'm not sure this is the desired behavior.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If we will decide to remove this tab for 'pci-passthrough' vNIC types, it should be removed as well from API.
Moving to DWH as we would like to add this to metric store.

Yes, still relevant.
We didn't get to this bug for more than 2 years, and it's not being considered for the upcoming 4.4. It's unlikely that it will ever be addressed so I'm suggesting to close it.
If you feel this needs to be addressed and want to work on it please remove cond nack and target accordingly.
Closing old bug. Please reopen if still relevant/you want to work on it.
