Description of problem:
After some time (didn't restart yet to verify as it's a production
station), the snmp uptime values start to be wrong, it seems like a
[root@d3vi1 ~]# snmpget -v 2c -c public localhost system.sysUpTime.0
SNMPv2-MIB::sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (25375329) 2 days, 22:29:13.29
[root@d3vi1 ~]# uptime
02:31:36 up 35 days, 12:18, 2 users, load average: 0.20, 0.34, 0.29
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

3.Compare the values. If the uptime is over ~32 days it resets for
Actual Results: The net-snmp reported values are wrong.

# snmpget -v 2c -c public bunny system.sysUpTime.0
system.sysUpTime.0 = Timeticks: (586752671) 67 days, 21:52:06.71
