Related to processor utilization, I recently found this on cco (need login):


Describes a series of steps to query the CISCO-PROCESS-MIB for the utilization figures, then 
correlate that back to the actual linecards by querying the ENTITY-MIB.  

I have not been able to make this work in our network as we are currently running an IOS that has the
bug mentioned in the document wherein the ENTITY-MIB is not correctly populated and retuns zero

I'm sure that an astute scripting person may well be able to create a cfgmaker-style utility for
discovering these and populating mrtg .cfg files accordingly?
