There are four Cisco CPU checks: cisco_cpu, cisco_cpu_multiitem, cisco_nexus_cpu, cisco_oldcpu. We discover the Cisco CPU utilization services in the following order:

- if it's a Nexus device the cisco_nexus_cpu check is used

- if the device contains the SNMP table .* then cisco_cpu_multiitem is used

- if the device has the OID . then cisco_cpu is used

- if . exists then cisco_oldcpu is used

After firmware updates there may be deprecated OIDs like . or . In such cases you have to re-discover the related hosts.

There also may Cisco hosts which have discovered the 'wrong' check type. After a re-discovery the CPU check type may change.
