Reset Rx/Tx totals on an Interface

Quick question- when are the total interface data usage RX and TX figures (Network, Interfaces) as show under LUCI reset. Can I adjust the reset timer to show data usage per month?
Can I do a quick data usage zero on all interfaces?

Me too. Anyone?

try vnstat, not a solution, but possible workaround ...

                      rx      /      tx      /     total    /   estimated
       2021-10       1.02 TB  /    85.89 GB  /     1.11 TB

  • On interface reset

I haven't witnessed a timer, it should count indefinitely.

If I understand this question, yes you can. Just restart the interface.

Doesn't work.

Apologies, I must misunderstand your question then. When I reload an interface, the counters go to zero.

How do you do that? When I reload WAN interface in LuCI, all counters are persist.
That also mentioned in other sources.
The only way I could find is reload the driver module or reboot.


  1. Hit Stop
  2. Hit Restart

Can you try your WAN interface (considering it's Ethernet)?
I did this exactly and it doesn't work for me (OpenWrt 21.02.1).

Ooh, seems I found the reason - one have to stop both WAN AND WAN6 interfaces, and restart - then the counters are reset indeed :slight_smile:
