Comments:

1. Looks like you are only checking for InErrors and not OutErrors

2. Do you really care about an actual Error count or should that be more 
of an error rate.

3. ifName in the IFMIB (1.3.6.1.2.1.31...) is distinct for each interface. 
The oid you are using belongs to ifDescr whose values could be the same 
for a number of interfaces.
