Description of problem:
When I try to retrieve some values on my 64 bits box such as ifInOctets with a 32 bits snmp client, I get wrong values. But when I try to get it with another box like a 64 bits snmp client it seems ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. snmpwalk -v 2c -c xxxxx xxxx .188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.1
Actual Results: IF-MIB::ifInOctets.1 = Counter32: 55192
IF-MIB::ifInOctets.2 = Counter32: 55192
Interface 1 is for lo and interface 2 is for eth0
Expected Results: The ifInOctets.2 and the ifInOctets.1 should be different. And ifInOctets.2 should increase at each query.
As I said, this error appears when I try to query a 64 bits computer's mib with a 32 bits computer's snmp client.
On my 64 box I got net-snmp-5.0.9 and on my 32 bits snmp client I got the same version.
I got the same problem with 64 bits computers under RHEL 4 with net-snmp-5.1.2 .
