I have question,
Would anyone know who calls var_ifEntry in Solaris ? i.e, this function
makes I imagine requests to kernel_sunos5.c to find out the actual
statistics values (I guess).
I'm trying to follow my intuition, and copy the pertinent
/mibII/interfaces.c code into a new /data_access/interface_solaris.c file
then again I could be completely on the wrong planet...
