This sounds more like a mrtg problem, right?

Changing to correct component...

Read ya, Phil
Comment 2 Martin Rheumer 2002-10-23 04:37:32 EDT
top shows that the snmpwalk and snmpget command are using most of the 
cpu and memory thus 
increasing the load.

As far as I can see, mrtg-2.10.5 itself never calls the snmpwalk or
snmpget commands, unless you have specified them in the config file as
an external monitoring script.
Please reopen if you still experience this with a recent release
and the load is caused by mrtg.
