Hello, thanks for your answer, 
Yes this work fine, but with a gap in the graph....  I understood that 
COUNTERs with a MAX can manage this problem nicely.

This is just fine for some of my interfaces but others need to manage the wrap 
because of the hight usage and many counter wraps, so I need the COUNTER DST.

I' m checking the sysuptime so if the interfaces counter is reseted i can 
detect it and handle this with the COUNTER Data source type.

Why the COUNTER dst doesn't work in my case ?
