I am wondering what command I should use to find out how much data has been sent/received through a particular interface (eth0 in this case) I'm sure its a really simple command, but I'm stumped.

Many thanks

cat /proc/net/dev.  The second column has a count of received bytes, and transmitted byte count is over to the right.  on an 80 character wide terminal screen it looks messed up but if you widen the screen it will appear OK.
