This sounds more like a mrtg problem, right?

Changing to correct component...

Read ya, Phil

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.
