I ran the netstat -s and I was wondering if there is a timeframe for this? Eg. at 1:00 pm, I ran netstat -s, I get 1000 segments retransmited. At 2:00 pm, I ran netstat -s, I get 2000 segments restransmited.
Would netstat purge its log whenever I ran the netstat so that I can measure the packet loss? Or is the netstat basing its calculation as to when the network was initially up? So, if it was up from Nov. 1, 2008, then if I ran netstat -s, it will show data from Nov. 1, 2008 until now?
