There are no MIBs that I'm aware of that provide per-CPU stats. However, both net-snmp and mrtg allow you to grab data from a shell command, so if you can concoct a way to get the data, you can graph it. I've been struggling with this for memory usage. I think it would be interesting to graph active, inactive, wired, buffer, and cache memory (maybe not terribly useful, but interesting). I can't seem to come up with a way to do so. -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
