montitoring cisco Catalyst 6509 CPU Utilization



I have defined a new Sensor , using Custom Sensors, choosing SNMP Custom. In the OID box I put the oid string, which gives the CPU Utilization.

When using this OID with SNMPWALK utility , I get this value as shown on the first line of the output cisco CLI - show proc cpu.

When I activate this sensor I get this error message: No Such Name (SNMP error # 2)

cisco cpu-load snmp

What are your results if you scan against the OID in case using our SNMP Tester?
