You worked around the current problem.  You are now having a problem
at 2^32/180=23860929 octets per second, or 190.89 Mbps, in stead of
one at 14316557 octets per second, or 114.53 Mbps.

A counter in RRDtool will handle 64 bit counters without you doing
anything.  The wrap-detection system works for both 32 bit and
64 bit counters.

Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offence. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
