Packet stats on Layer 2 (ethernet, DSL, etc.) can be seen per interface in the WebUI at Reports > Counters > Hardware; Layer 3 at Reports > Counters > Flow.
In CLI the resp. commands are
   get counter statistics interface ...
   get counter flow interface ...
here you can collect stats additionally per zone instead of interface.
