Cannot monitor CPU Load of Ubuntu PC via SNMP



I follow the check list: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/5353-monitoring-linux-problem-snmp-port-not-reachable but I cannot monitor CPU load of Ubuntu 16.04 machine via SNMP. But I can monitor SNMP Uptime.

Do you have any idea for this case?

Yes, I posted a solution in your other thread.

Tested it on my end (Ubuntu 18.04), adding an SNMP CPU Load sensor works and the sensor gets values.

Kind regards,
