Hmmm... that output appears to have counters (rather than percentages),
but maybe my "glance" at it wasn't enough...

In any case, it's not /too/ far a cry from (solaris netstat -in):

Name  Mtu  Net/Dest      Address        Ipkts  Ierrs Opkts  Oerrs Collis Queue 
lo0   8232      446973 0     446973 0     0 0     
le0   1500 a.b.c.d       a.b.c.d        1246711 0    1465439 1    286 0     

...though I seem to remember the linux kernel never increments the
"drop" counter, so it's... well... guess we can look at it anyway and
see if it ever changes.

Seems to me it would make more sense to just get all "local"
filesystems.  Something like a "df -kl" or some such... or is there a
flaw in the logic, like read-only or removeable media or proc/swap

is borked on the platform, anyway -- like vmstat everywhere else)
