update of MIB variable 'ifInOctects'

Hi,

I'd like to know if the MIB variable "ifInOctets" is incremented within each packet received in an interface or if this change is controlled by a timer or something like that.

Thanks all,

Re: update of MIB variable 'ifInOctects'

"ifInOctets" increments with each packet received. It is described as 'The total number of octets received on the interface, including framing characters'. After reaching the maximum value, the counter wraps and starts all over again. A stream of 10 Mbps full-size packets will cause it to wrap in 57 minutes, while a 100 Mbps stream would lead to a wrap in 5.7 minutes.
