Cat6509 - SNMP OIDs for interface stats

Unanswered Question

I have a Catalyst 6509-E-VSS with IOS 12.2(33)SXI3.

I'm looking for OIDs to retrieve the same counters I get with the commands

"show interface stats" and "show interface switching".

I want to graph the number of packets that are process switched.

The OIDs from IF-MIB (  ifInOctets, ...) show only the total number of octets not the

switching path.

Thanks for help

After a long time silence on this frontier the problem is comming up again.

My goal is still to find out, what interface causes process switched traffic.

There is usualy a lot of traffic handled in software but sometimes (of course on weekend midnight) it seems to increase the cpu load (IP Input process).

Regarding the Cisco document "Troubleshooting High CPU Utilization Due to the IP Input Process" I want to monitor traffic by switching path.

So again - does anybody has an idea to get these counters with snmp ?

Update: IOS is now 12.2(33)SXJ3
