Then it's definitely not good for a COUNTER: your counters are 64-bit integers, 
and they wrap at 64-bit boundary.
Multiplied by 8, and probaly summarized, you wouldn't be able to handle 
the counter wraps any more. 

So, we need a better real-life example to convince the RRDtool development team 
to change the treatment of numbers...
