snmp reports insane ifhcoutoctets from cisco

I've tried pulling this value using cacti as well as net-snmp to make sure that it reports correctly. This oid and oid's for other interfaces on this and other routers report similarly astronomical numbers. So basically values that i get reported for this oid is in the trillions. Is is that I'm not reading data correctly?

After reaching this value, the counter will be reset.

If the value you get is greater, there is something wrong ;-)

Errors in Cisco counters are not that uncommon. If you take software through a test before commiting it to customers you should also check counters. /hjj
