NetBSD has the same ipfilter as OpenBSD <3.0

Use count rules and ipfstat -a -i to view counters.

IPA is an excellent tool for efficiently =
storing these counters and later retrieving statistics for any time =

i want to use NetBSD as a transparent bridge that does traffic
accounting on the bridged ethernet devices. I know that NetBSD is able
to behave as an 802.3 Bridge, but is it possible to count the traffice
running through the devices?

I build something like that with OpenBSD and ipfilter, but i am not sure
if NetBSD is also able to do the job.
