I've been using ubuntu servers for a long time, but something i've never quite understood was the ifconfig command and total bandwidth.
I've found that on every server i've used, and some desktop versions, the bandwidth ALWAYS resets its total when it hits something like 4.6GB. How can i change it where it keeps track of more total bandwidth?
I've logged into a professional hosting site that uses Ubuntu Servers, and when i used Ifconfig on their server it reported the real total, which ranged over the TB mark. I want my servers to do the same.
