This file is dynamically generated when it is read. In addition, the
counters used to generate it are updated for all TX/RX frame. I have
never seen any delay in the statistics and I do not know of any reason
why that would happen. Do you open the file for every read or just seek
to the beginning? I'm not actually sure whether this would change
things, but if you don't close it between reads, you could try doing
