When working with vnstat, i specified each domU vifname to log the traffic. Now if i stop and start any domU (i also start vnstat monitoring for that vifname before i stop the domU), most of the times, i see a huge number added to the traffic stats which the vnstat shows for that interface.

I was able to replicate this on 3 different servers and all same came up with same problems in traffic reporting.

The thread is sort of old, I've since removed the previous posts.. just
to re-cap, you had an issue when the vif was re-started and the count
also re-setting? or you couldn't get vnstat to log the vif?

You did specify the vifname for each dom-u you were logging, right? I've
yet to experience errors with it, but I've only been using it about 90
days and haven't needed to re-start any.
