Hello,

I have a problem on my Gentoo used as a router on which I monitor the traffic using SNMP and MRTG.
This system is in use for years, I have some value in MRTG not updating anymore and after some check I found the reason : counters are full!

snmpwalk -v 2c -c myCommunity localhost ipIfStatsHCInOctets.ipv6.3 -On
.1.3.6.1.2.1.4.31.3.1.6.2.3 = Counter64: 9223372036854775807

This counter is 0x7FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF and does not reset even if I restart the system.

Same for the 32bit counter :
snmpwalk -v 2c -c myCommunity localhost ipIfStatsInOctets.ipv6.3 -On
.1.3.6.1.2.1.4.31.3.1.5.2.3 = Counter32: 4294967295

This counter is 0xFFFFFFFF and does not reset either.

This system is virtualised using VMware.

Can someone tell me how I force the system to reset the counters? google could not help finding anything.

Many thanks
Ridrok

Hello,

ipIfStatsHCOutOctets.ipv6.3 resets fine and ipIfStatsOutOctets.ipv6.3 too, but ipIfStatsHCInOctets.ipv6.3 and ipIfStatsInOctets.ipv6.3 do not.

Can you please tell me where these SNMP data are stocked, so I can clear them?

Thanks
