#9206 closed defect (wontfix)

Some components can't count traffic more than 4Gb properly.

Reported by: User294 Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: base system Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC4
Keywords: Cc:


At least in Backfire 10.03.1-rc4 some components can't count traffic properly, at least on various MIPS targets

1) ifconfig would not count TX or RX traffic over 4Gb and counters rather would overflow and start from scratch. So if you'll download 5Gb of traffic, you would rather see something like 1Gb instead.

2) same goes for LuCI status -> Interfaces as well. Status never displays values over 4Gb, ever. Even if you'll pass much more traffic.

Thats a very well known Linux limitation and not related to OpenWrt at all.

root@cer:~# ifconfig | grep 'RX bytes'

RX bytes:59162685972 (55.0 GiB) TX bytes:45042755119 (41.9 GiB)

Yet Luci shows 4GB. How is this not related to OpenWrt?

(cer is my home edge router, running OpenWRT AA 12.09.)
