VegaStream has some very nice ATAs and T38 devices (still), but after the upgrade to VEGA400_R082S017 (8.2.17) every two and a half day their system.sysUptime counter gets resetted:

> Host  : sjh-vega400
> Output: Uptime is less than an hour! (328.61 seconds)
> Date  : 2008-02-28 14:21:08

According to Nagios, this happens every two and a half days:

The device doesn't reboot, the sysUpTime count just goes back to zero. Device itself says it's up for 9 days.

About 2 days, 11 hours, 37 minutes, 62 seconds.
214682 seconds...

No idea which magic number is involved here.

Thanks to callum on : 2 ^ 31 / 10,000, or an overflow of the signed counter of the number of 100 microseconds.
