SubjectPaket counters for aliased interfaces ?
Hello,

I would like to use IP-Aliasing to create a private network
between a few machines without buying more hardware. That's
easy, but ifconfig tells me:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
inet addr:x.x.x.x Bcast:x.x.x.x Mask:x.x.x.x
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:126810 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:1426
TX packets:49286 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:15942 txqueuelen:100
Interrupt:17

eth0:0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
inet addr:10.1.1.1 Bcast:10.1.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
Interrupt:17

And here's the question:
I would like to collect statistics for eth0:0 but obviously the
pakets are only counted for the real interface. If I had enough time
and knowledge, how should I implement paket counters for aliased
interfaces ?

PS: Am I right that it isn't possible ? tcpdump doesn't 'work right'
either.
