Network stats are based on a 32bit number if I recall. When you have
passed enough traffic, that number will roll over and begin again.

If you want to monitor traffic, phpsysinfo really isn't the way to do
it. Use cacti or mrtg to poll the system periodically and record the
stats. It takes into account network rollover.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
