  1. take separate deltas for all those different figures
  2. yes you need to gather this data in db server
  3. identify the network interface cards through which your test traffic goes and use netstat on those only (netstat -i should allow you to specify network interfaces to measure)

Qs => Does Delta need to be taken of "netstat -i" outputs taken at periodic intervals? Qs => How are the Pkts to be converted into Bytes/Bits? Am assuming that Sum (i.e. Ipkts + Opkts) needs to be done nevertheless.

Sample Output of netstat -i:-

Name      Mtu  Network         Address         Ipkts   Ierrs Opkts   Oerrs Coll
lan2      1500    22462215 0     17477027 0     0
lan1*     1500 none            none            0        0     0        0     0
lan0      1500  SPEHPPA1        73224092 0     55948646 0     0
lo0       4136 loopback        localhost       2037063  0     2037070  0     0
