OID value, what does it mean?

I am planning on monitoring system CPU usage using SNMP. I have loaded an
hp-unix MIB into a MIB browser under Linux (tkmib) and found the OID of:
.1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.3.1.1.13
which is labeled as ...computerSystemUserCPU.
I plan on using RRD (http://www.caida.org/Tools/RRDtool/) to store and graph
this data.

The value appears to be a counter. The question is what is it counting? Is
there some place that will describe hp-unix MIBS in detail, a man page, online
doc, anything? I'm also looking for detailed info on other MIBS as well.

Thanks,
Aaron

Aaron, check in $OV_CONF/mibExpr.conf for detailed explanations.

Re: OID value, what does it mean?

Try looking at site:
ftp://venera.isi.edu/mib/hp-unix.
I am trying to get the same information, using snmpwalk. Do you have any
information on how to load an hp-unix MIB into a browser under Linux(MRTG)?
