I have noticed that on our linux boxes, the RX/TX counters on Ethernet
interfaces reset to 0 Mb at around the 4000 Mb mark.
There was a lot of traffic going through the interface (possibly a
dos) and I couldn't keep track of how much was actually going through
using ifconfig, it was quite annoying.
Where is the RX/TX value stored? somewhere in the /proc filesystem?
What is the reason for this the reset to 0? is there any way to make
it not reset?
Thanks in advance...
