Description

Currently the In/Out Packets counters shown for Interface Status are taken from pfctl. Hence they show the identical values as In/out packets (pass).

However for some interface types, VTI for example, traffic is not filtered on the interface which results in the counters always showing zero.

Those counters were taken from netstat at one time but were switched to pfctl in pfSense 2.0 because it used 64bit counters. Since then netstat has moved to 64bit counters and provides more useful values for all interface types.

Also netstat has libxo support so getting the data should be fairly simple (e.g. netstat -ni --libxo=json)

Doesn't look likely that we'll have time to finish this for 23.05. Moving forward to the next release target.
