It seems that when I check bandwidth with systat -ifstat, I can see 
something along these lines:

	Traffic               Peak                Total
in     32.854 KB/s         35.591 KB/s            1.341 GB
out    39.760 KB/s        130.318 KB/s          430.087 MB

I am a bit curious though why once the outgoing bandwidth exceeds (more 
or less) 3GB, the Total counter gets reset and starts counting from scratch.

Is it because of the network interface?

Ethernet> port 0xd000-0xd0ff mem 0xf1000000-0xf1000fff irq 16 at device 
0.0 on pci3

If it matters, 'uname -ris' says

Many thanks!
