I'm trying to trace a possible link problem on one of our servers' ethernet interfaces.
ifconfig reports a large number of error packets. I've asked the hosting company to make some changes to the setup and would like to reset the interface counters to get a better idea if the situation has improved.
Restarting the machine is the obvious answer, but as this machine is the primary NAS, a maintenance window will be hard to acquire. Is it possible to reset the counters without a restart of the machine ?
Operating system is RedHat EL4, 32bit.
