Solution
It is not possible to reset the counters in NetSight's 'I/F Statistics' screen (click port number, select 'I/F Statistics'), short of resetting the device. This is not a management product shortcoming, but is a factor of the MIB design; and would be common to any SNMP management application.

Depending upon the device, it may be possible to reset these statistics for the duration of that management session, via either a Telnet or serial management session.

In either case, the data source is:
            internet=1.3.6.1
mgmt=1.3.6.1.2
mib-2=1.3.6.1.2.1
interfaces=1.3.6.1.2.1.2
ifTable=1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2
ifEntry=1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1

             ifIndex=1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.1
ifDescr=1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.2
