You are trying to use the OID from OLD-CISCO-CPU-MIB.  That is not supported
on the cat switches.  It's been my experience that anything "below"
enterprises.9.5 isn't supported on these switches--usually a good tipoff
you're looking in the wrong place.  Go to
for a list of MIBs supported on 6509s.

I would suggest looking in CISCO-PROCESS-MIB.  You'll find some CPU OIDs
there.  They are different from the OIDs used for routers though (for one,
they are a gauge type as opposed to an integer), so make sure you do your
homework before implementing them.
