Default vlans and pfstat

Hi

Currently I have 2 nic's.
I'm generating stats with pfstat, logging download rate from users behind NAT. If I make some vlans on my $LAN interface, am I will still be able to generate the stats for users on vlans? From openbsd manual:
Code:
"..Statistics can only be gathered for one interface at a time.."
Vlans are physical interface ? Someone tries this?

No, they are a pseudo-device. See vlan(4).

I have not, but I don't believe it matters to PF whether the loginterface is physical or pseudo. PF merely sees the interface tables and communicates with the interface driver. There can only be a single loginterface defined.

If you wish to conduct your own research, the source to PF as well as vlan (and other interfaces) may be found in src/sys/net.

I hope data from vlans are going through lan interface so it can be gather by pfstat, but that its just a hope. I cant check this right now cause I'm waiting for hp switch.

Regards...

Installation: FAQ 15 (ports/packages) and the pkg_add(8) man page.

I'm not aware of any "how to" for this utility. However, if you use:
$ pkg_info -L pfstat
you will see what files were (or will be) installed, including a man page and example configuration.
