Yes the counter wrap is done at the script. But absolute is used only when the counter is reset on each read I guess. That is not the case, what
I meant was the counter is wrapped by the script once it reaches 2^32. I checked on with the debug options too. It seem to read the data values
each time with no errors but though the read is fine it drops the traffic to 0. Totally surprising.

I am checking with it to see if any errors and/or faults could be found.

P.S: I tried with the absolute option too. What results is the same graphing pattern. A comb like graph.
