You should get exactly what you got in the first attempt plus what ever traffic has passed through between queries. I did notice that the first attempt uses snmpwalk and the second uses snmpget. Perhaps snmpget has malfunctioned. If you specify the leaf OID with snmpwalk what do you get?

I get the same thing using snmpwalk. I'd love to get this working so I can generate some killer RRDTOOL graphs.. <GRIN>

This IS odd, especially since I'm doing this no problem with cricket (which uses RRDtool as a backend, see my other thread in this forum.)Good luck.

Make sure that you are not collecting an Octet Sting and trying to convert it to a counter. This would most likely result in zero values.
