[rrd-users] rrdtool doesn't detect integer overflow

Hi List,

sometimes my rrdtool graph want to tell me, that the Server did transfer
about 100 Peto Byte at one time slice.
It seems that rrdtoo doesn't get the overflow of the bytes counter.
As a data source I'm parsing the /proc/net/dev file.
Does someone know what's wrong? I've read that rrdtool DS:COUNTER
detects automatically when the counter overflows.

Cheers Alex
