How can i find the correct OID to get the total cpu usage of my Checkpoint (linux) based firewall? with 8 cores CPU.

I found this :

ssCpuUser .
ssCpuSystem .
ssCpuIdle .

But i want to the total CPU load in %

When i type TOP i can see this :

Cpu(s): 0.1%us, 0.3%sy, 0.0%ni, 95.9%id, 0.0%wa, 0.1%hi, 3.6%si, 0.0%st

So I tried the following calculation (100-ssCpuIdle) to get the percentage, but maybe there is an another solution?

snmpwalk -v2c -cpublic localhost . | awk -F : '{print 100-$4}'
