[mrtg] Re: Problem with Graphing Processor Load for AS/400

Well as you suggested I have already tried the explicit OID and also I tried 
"hrprocessorload.2&hrprocessorload.2" for plotting but I still get the same 
error (even when using numeric OID). The snmpget works perfect on the other 

I am really confused now!! Please help

Thanks for the help

The other problem *could* be that you are referencing the OID incorrectly.  
Have you tried the . rather than hrProcessorLoad.0 
in the cfg file?  Remember that MRTG needs two values.  So unless you have 2 
processors, you need to graph the same value twice, graph processor load and 
some other value that returns zero, or proc load and something else that may 
relate to that value...  I would try at least the instances of .0, .1, .2 
and .3 to verify how many instances of the hrProcessorLoad mib will respond. 
  I would agree with Alex, it's probably a dual processor system, and you'll 
need to reference both the .1 and .2 instance.

hrProcessorLoad.2 is working ...

... and this receives an error.  The logical conclusion
is that hrProcessorLoad.0 is wrong.  Try snmpwalk on
and see which instances are there.  If it is a dual processor system,
the instances will most likely be 1 and 2, not 0 and 2.
