On a Linux 2.6.20-16-server build, with a ~3 week old version of Argus3:
If ones config file has:
# fgrep eth /etc/argus.conf
/sbin/ifconfig eth5 up
has not been run, then argus will not collect most traffic
on eth0 and eth1 (even though they are up). It drops all
but about .5% of the traffic.
Obviously not a config I should do, but since there wasn't
any traffic on eth5 yet, I had not worried about it.
