multiprocessor sparc - ticks vs % CPU usage

multiprocessor sparc - ticks vs % CPU usage

multiprocessor sparc - ticks vs % CPU usage

I have a multiprocessor sparc v440 and I'm trying to monitor cpu usage.  The mibs are showing ticks, but I don't see any for % or usage.  I was reading and someone indicated the this is the way its done for mutliprocessor systems.  Is there a mib for each cpu just to see the % usage.  I don't quite understand the tick difference and how it is used to measure how the cpus are performing.  

I am using, 11.52, etc.

Thank you

I also tried which may be Idle CPU %, but is that for 1 processor or all processors (or invalid)?

I installed net-snmp 5.4 and the were mibs for hrProcessorLoad (1 for each cpu).
