It's a different SNMP OID that needs to be queried (and of course the
client application needs to support 64bit counters).

12.0S has had 64 bit counters since the beginning, if I remember correctly
- they have been introduced in the 11.1CC series.

They are usually not supported for all kinds of interfaces (like "this
interface is so low-speed that nobody would want 64 bit counters for
consistency with other interfaces"), so there are some pitfalls here.

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
