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.
