Further to my note re: collecting data on cisco 2916/24 switches last week,
does anyone know if ifInOctets/ifOutOctets on a switch (any switch!)
represent the actual traffic on these ports?
The numbers I am getting from snmpCollect sure don't look real!
And graphing in real time (from the mib browser) doesn't look any better.
My gut feeling is that the numbers are misleading, in that they don't
represent the traffic, but some aggregate count???
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
