      Description

      The Template SNMP Interfaces includes Item prototypes as part of its discovery rules.

      Two of these are:

      Incoming traffic on interface

      {#SNMPVALUE} - ifInOctets[{#SNMPVALUE}

      ]
      Outgoing traffic on interface

      {#SNMPVALUE} - ifOutOctets[{#SNMPVALUE}

      ]

      These are both 32-bit values, which default to being polled no less than 60 seconds apart. This breaks stats on interfaces > 650Mbps, which is very common in today's GigE, 10GE, 40GE+ environments.

      These should probably be updated to use ifInOctets[

      {#SNMPVALUE}] / ifOutOctets[{#SNMPVALUE}

      ] if they are available. These are the 64-bit versions.
