Sorry I don't claim to be a cisco expert, I checked the doco from the Cisco
site before implementing the monitoring to check I was using the correct
values and it said:


Starting with Cisco IOS® software version 12.0(3)T, the CISCO-PROCESS MIB
and its objects:

cpmCPUTotal5min (.

cpmCPUTotal1min (.

cpmCPUTotal5sec (.

are used to replace the avgBusy5, avgBusy1, and busyPer objects from the
OLD-CISCO-CPU MIB, respectively.

This indicated a change in version 12.x.
