Very high discard rates reported by interface_traffic probe

We are running version 5.23 of interface_traffic.  I'm seeing several hundred values a day for QOS_INTERFACE_DISCARDS_PERC of well over 100%.  Some are over 14 BILLION percent.


Is anyone else seeing these?  I assume they may be due to a counter roll-over, but they get sent to the data_engine which merrily puts them into the database.  This causes the average and standard deviation to be way off and reporting is crazy.


Many of these devices are firewalls, which on occassion act up, but some are core switches.


Any help from anyone is appreciated.
