Data Collection Values

Data Collection Values

Okay, I've been away from NNM for a few years.  I have a question about the values presented by the data collector.  Specifically, IfInOctets and IfOutOctets.

I fired up the data collector to collect those two variables from a Cisco switch, exported them, then used ovcolqsql to extract them (with the -s raw option).  First, I was taken aback a little when I discovered that they are stored as "float" values, since the variable itself is an integer.  Is NNM presenting me with a calculated data rate rather than just the raw number of octets since the last sampling?
