    SubjectHow can /proc/net/dev not report bytes?
    I wrote an app that reads /proc/net/dev for net interface monitoring.
    A user reported eth0 not working so I had him send me /proc/net/dev
    contents. He had this (cut down):

    Inter-| Receive | Transmit
    face |bytes packets errs drop fifo frame compressed multicast|bytes pa
    lo: 16205 187 0 0 0 0 0 0 16205
    eth0: 0 19346 0 2 0 0 0 12247 0

    My question is, how can eth0 be reporting 0 bytes when obviously packet
    traffic is occurring? Is this something that can be affected by any
    configuration program or was this a bug in 2.2.5? His machine is
    straight out of the box RedHat 6.0.
