Does your router support 64bit counters? I believe they are
In Octets: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1.1.6
Out Octets: 220.127.116.11.18.104.22.168.1.1.10
this sounds like the interface is doing a lot of traffic and therefor
overflowing the maximum 32-bit value of a normal SNMP Counter. It
depends what collector you are using how you would overcome this so
check the docs for your collector.
