    I need to account for packets on a per-session basis, where a
    session endpoint is a UDP port. So, knowing global protocol numbers is
    good, but it is not very useful for the detailed accounting I
    need. I could also use per-socket TCP counters, like re-transmits,
    etc. I have not looked to see if they are already there
    or not...

    Thanks,
    Ben
