freeBSD CPU monitoring using nagios

Hi all,

I am not being able to monitor CPU of freeBSD machine from my CentOS server. I have used check_aix_cpu but always gives garbage value, seems wrong in scripting. i want to monitor CPU usage of my freeBSD machine from my centOS
server. I am able to monitor many services of that machine like mailq, processes, free space, uptime but not CPU.

Kindly please help.
