Hello,

both sensors monitor the same (CPU Usage), but use different OIDs. The SNMP CPU Sensors uses a generic SNMP Standard OID, while the Cisco System Health Sensor uses a Cisco Vendor OID. Technically, the values should of course be very similar, so that you could remove one of the two sensors.

best regards.
