vnStat - if pointed to eth0 will it aggregate eth0 and eth0:1 alias

Hi all,

I have started to work on bandwidth monitoring because of the way I am charged for inbound and outbound data on my web server.

I have vnstat configured to watch eth0 which is my public facing interface and managed as eth0 and eth0:1.

There is nothing explicit about this in the man and it doesn't accept aliases as an interface specification.

Will vnstat aggregate the packets over both those interfaces or will eth0:1 be ignored because it is an alias and will get missed in the way that vnstat polls the activity?
