Hi guys,

My server uses up tons of bandwidth every month and I'd like to start recording what traffic volumes my different services chew up on a monthly basis. My firewall utility of choice is pf and I've recently come across its neat "label" facility so that I can do a simple "pfctl -sl" to get the latest readings.

That's all fair and well but I lose all that lovely accounting information upon reboot so how do I go about saving this? I've googled quite a bit to look for a solution but have found nothing useful so far, just unanswered posts in the past.

From what I can tell so far I'd have to write a custom rc script which redirects "pfctl -sl" into some sort of logfile which then may be retrieved at a later stage (and added to current counter output). Is there an easier way perhaps?
