[mrtg] Reboot problems

Hi All,
  I'm still relatively new to mrtg, but I seem to have a nice system going..

  I ran into a problem this weekend when we did our normal system reboots 
that involved monitoring a Sun Solaris 2.7 ethernet card.

from my config file:

Target[mail.tisny.com]: 2:public at mail.tisny.com
MaxBytes[mail.tisny.com]: 1200
Title[mail.tisny.com]: mail (mail.tisny.com): hme0
Options[mail.tisny.com]: growright
PageTop[mail.tisny.com]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for hme0
   <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>mail in System administrators office</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Maintainer:</TD><TD>System administrator</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Interface:</TD><TD>hme0 (2)</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>IP:</TD><TD>mail.tisny.com (</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>
       <TD>1200.0 Bytes/s (Other)</TD></TR>

Basically, the problem is quite simple, when we rebooted the box, it 
started responding to mrtg's SNMP requests w/ ifInOctet and ifOutOctet
values that were less than the 'last' value stored in the log file.  I'm 
assuming these values were reset to 0 during the reboot.

Does anyone have a good strategy for dealing w/ this?   Am I just missing
an option?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Tony Nelson
