Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You're right. The alx driver was very recently mainlined (6/2013) by J. Berg based on a very basic driver proposed by Qualcomm/Atheros. Traffic counters have not been added yet.
That might be it. I just built this desktop a few months ago, and it is new, so I guess the driver just isn't complete. I might try a newer kernel, but I would like a long-term kernel, so I'll wait a bit.
Not a bug. As that fellow mancha mentioned in post #4, traffic counters are not yet in the driver which is still very basic.
Yes, I saw that, but maybe e-mailing them will get them to look into it. Their git repo hasn't been updated since April 2013, so I don't see why I shouldn't send them an e-mail and see if they respond.
