Hello, we are running the last version of the Nortel Baystack 350T-HD =
switch image, and after upgrade, ( we cannot anymore downgrade I think), =
and after installation of a new version of MRTG software to latest revs, =
we observe that our InOctets and OutOctets are not showing up as =
expected, they are simply showing Hundreds of Mbps and possibly totally =
bogus data, before we had this weirdness, we had very very =
straightforward packets/in/out and accurate counts. Now, using the same =
configuration file, or doing a new ConfigMaker invocation it doesn't =
matter, the result is pretty much weird.

We tried to put in the exact OID to get the statistics but the result is =
that it works "occassionally" and most probably incorrect. Please see =
the small attached image that shows on the ports... I can assure it =
really doesn't mean anything.

How can I start diagnosing this ? Could somehow the math libraries used =
by MRTG or the SNMP libraries have been changed? is their any =
prerequisite for the latest version of the MRTG installs, that a library =
could have been linked which was the wrong version ? Does anyone on the =
list use it to check a nortel baystack 350T switch please ?
