[mrtg] HPUX cpu usage always 0!

Hi People,

I've recently started monitoring a couple of HPUX (v11.0) boxes and I've
been trying to get the CPU usage to come up right, but it always seems
to be 0 in MRTG.

I'm using the MIB for computerSystemIdleCPU, subtracting it from 100 and
using that as the % busy.
Snmpget returns correct results, but MRTG/rateup just seems to get zero.

See below for snmpget example and mrtg.cfg file.

HELP! :)


[root at craiglinux bin]# snmpget -v 2c -c XXXXXX aklkey02; sleep 300; snmpget -v 2c -c XXXXXX aklkey02
