I believe i read somewhere that PHP's integer max was 2147483647?

If using snmp to pull bandwidth information from a device (such as ifInOctets and ifOutOctets), the number DOES constandly rise. If using a device with snmpv1 (32bit) the counter will only reach a certain number before it rolls over the the opposite and negative number and counts toward the maximum again.

The Max (and prolly min?) is the same as PHP's. 

"INTEGER(-2147483648..2147483647) -- corresponds to a signed 32-bit int"

Well, once the counter turns over to the negative, php only returns "2147483647" for every negative value it reads.

Such as, my ifInOctets for my cisco router is now reading '-1980181848', and php's snmpget on that oid returns '2147483647', but when the counter is positive, it returns the correct value.

(this is probably a problem on 64bit snmpv2 since i believe its maximum is much higher, but thats probably not fix-able)

Any update on this? If it needs more information/some way of confirmation, i would be happy to aid.

GRRRR. PHP works FINE. When php grabs the data, it grabs the correct number (even fixes the negative hoopla).

The reason i THOUGHT i was getting an error is becuase i store this data in MYSQL, and it cannot do numbers past the max int either (in an int column), which is why it was stopping at the hieghest number.
