APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • SNMP Interface64 counter on DataPower will wrap at 4294967296
    bytes, which is expected for interface32 counters.  For example:
    
     32-bit = 2^32-1 = 4294967295
     64-bit = 2^64-1 = 18446744073709551615
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Network interface byte counters gathered via the
    NetworkInterfaceStatus provider overflow after 2^32 even though
    the number is supposed to be 64bit (overflow after 2^64). This
    also affects values returned by SNMP.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
