    Well, if you mean network interfaces, I'm not aware that this is tracked
    at all by most Unix kernels. Typically, when the OS comes up on Unix,
    so does the network interface.

    netstat -i shows the traffic seen on the various interfaces on Solaris
    and MacOS X.

    ifconfig -a shows the network interfaces and their configuration.

    uptime shows the load average and uptime of the running Unix OS.

    Worse, you can use ifconfig to turn off an interface (bringing
    it down), then use ifconfig to turn on an interface (bringing
    it up) and the interface will remember all of its old packet
    counts on ever Unix I've tried. I am convinced it is not
    tracked by any kernel I've tried.
