Using SNMP to monitor MB used over 3G and GPRS

i have been using Castle Rock SNMPc to monitor the ifOutOctets and IfInOctets on our routers (using the RFC1213 (i think)) when they  use up too many Mega bytes the snmp server produces an alarm and displays it on the alarm banner.

our routers are westermo DR250's and MR250's (AKA Sarian) and cisco 800 series routers.

what i want to know is does anyone know of a method of resetting the ifOutOctets and ifInOctets automatically monthly. at the moment i have to log in to the routers and reset these manually.

to automate the process of logging in manually and clearing interface you need to get some kind of scripts and run them periodically. I don't know if you use linux or not, but I you can setup a system with that. I am talking about Cisco routers as I don't have experience in the other routers.
