That's the main problem, all the zeros in your pfstat log indicate that
interface logging is not enabled.

Well, what version are you running (uname -a)? And what interface you
want to collect the statistics for (usually the external one)?
Either run 'pfctl -l iface' (replace iface with xl0, kue0, etc.) for 3.1
and earlier or put the line 'set loginterface iface' (replace iface...)
at the top of /etc/pf.conf for 3.2.

Make sure /var/log/pfstat doesn't grow too large. You can rotate it
periodically like the man page explains (tail -n ...).
