Well, there are different OIDs supported depending on which version of IOS 
you run on your Cisco box.
One way is to do an snmpget using the different OIDs and see which ones that 
gives you a number.
A good tool for looking in to OIDs is OidView (You can download a demo from 
their web site and check it out, www.oidview.com)

The OID mentioned by Steve Lindeman is from an outdated MIB 
I recommend you using OIDs from the newer CISCO-PROCESS-MIB  cpmCPUTotal5secRev   cpmCPUTotalMonIntervalValue
