HP-UX monitoring over SNMP

Hi everyone,
I try to take a monitoring of HP-UX server over SNMP to a Cacti server. I've created a shell script which returns CPU load values which normally must be sent to that server. I've included this script in snmpd.conf. The problem is that I can't find the OID of these load values.
The HP-UX has installed HP-OV only.
Can somebody help me ?

Check for a file


or download a copy of Network Node Manager 7 and file a snmp mib file called hp-ux. IT describes all of the standard hpux mibs

Re: HP-UX monitoring over SNMP

Dear Emil,
I've checked hp-unix file and I've checked every OID values corresponding to this file, but without any success. Maybe I've configured not good the snmpd.conf. I've included the following command to return the CPU load value
get-community-name: monitoring
sh hrProcessorLoad /bin/sh /etc/snmpextension/

When I check Cacti NM

snmpwalk -v2c -c monitoring [ip address] enterprises 11 | grep -e hrProcessorLoad

the result is null.

Maybe will be good to install Net-SNMP, because I've tried this configuration of snmpd.conf in net-snmp and it works ?
