[mrtg] Counter Overflow

Basic question to end a long day with....

We have just started monitoring gigabit fibre interfaces on Cisco switches
using standard SNMPV1.  As this is a heavily used uplink for a dedicated
backup server it is used excessively, do I need to worry about interface
counters wrapping and being reset?  I assume there is a finite counter
limit that will be reached?  Would it be preferable to use SNMPV2c or am I
going down the wrong track?

Is it easy to verify if a device supports the ifHC* counters under SNMPV2c.

Thanks in advance
