This is what one solved case says about this scenario..

"admin who,sqm can sometimes show a negative number for bytes written/ read.
This will happen if the RS has done a lot of i/o and the value overflows
into a negative number. The customer gets a value of "-869,247,261" for
bytes written. If converted to an unsigned, value of 3,425,720,035 will come
up using "bit" utility"
