I'm working on a way to take the output 
from /proc/net/dev in linux. That has all the 
throughput from your internet devices. Like snmp 
pollong of routers in a way. I had it working fine and 
all. My problem was when I rebooting my linux server 
and that info in /proc/net/dev get reseted to 0. Now I 
had my DS line to COLLECT type. I read the doc and the 
only way it'll roll over is looking for the 32 or 64 
bit. Now is there a way around keeping it going or what 
not once a reboot happens? Or is this a useless task?
