snmp__load - Munin plugin to monitor load average via SNMP.
Any SNMP-capable device that reports the UCD-SNMP-MIB::laLoad.2 OID. This includes those running the SNMPd provided by the Net-SNMP project.
As a rule SNMP plugins need site specific configuration. The default configuration (shown here) will only work on insecure sites/devices.
[snmp_*] env.version 2 env.community public
In general SNMP is not very secure at all unless you use SNMP version 3 which supports authentication and privacy (encryption). But in any case the community string for your devices should not be "public".
Please see 'perldoc Munin::Plugin::SNMP' for further configuration information.
Load average provides an indication of how many processes are contending for the CPU. Under normal conditions, it should be less than or equal to the number of CPUs. (Compare to the 'load' Munin plugin.)
This plugin requires support for the UCD-SNMP-MIB, authored by the University of California, Davis and maintained by the Net-SNMP project. It reports the contents of the laLoad.2 OID.
