[mrtg] Problem with outlast

We recently upgraded our linux server, and for some reason SNMP is
not detecting any out bytes on our eth0 network device.. resulting in a
MRTG graph that only shows incoming traffic. (http://noc.wen.net)

I'm not sure what I need to do here to get the lastout to be something
other than 0.  Perhaps something that needs to be changed in
/etc/snmpd.conf? ifconfig?

I turned on DEBUG in the mrtg script and this is the result..

Reading ifDescs from mrtg.ok ... getting SNMP variables for target:
2:public at wen.net snmpget: ifInOctets.2 ifOutOctets.2 wen.net public
2:public at wen.net --> in: 1141667590 out: 0 name: independence Writing
ifDescs to mrtg.ok ... 
getcurrent: rcfg target router independence.wen.net
= $$target{'2:public at wen.net'}{$mode} 
inlast 1141667590 outlast 0 uptime 1 day, 23:51:07 name independence time

Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!
