Those are just the data for the physical ports on the alteon. Those
would show the combined amount of traffic going through your alteon. If
you want per VIP statistics, you'd need to look at the Alteon MIB.

Funny because i've been working on that myself lately.

$ snmpwalk -v1 -c $community $host
will show the contents of the Alteon MIB, there's LOADS of info.

Unfortunately i don't know what number is what exactly, although with
the use of the Alteon EMS and clever tcpdumping you can distinguish
between certain graphable values. f.e. is the amount of sessions on real
server N with N ranging from 1 to 255, etc.

I had weird traffic graphs from the normal interface snmp mib too.
But i'm not interested in total traffic. Per server/vip is more
important to me ;)
