Cisco Process MIB

Hi - I've been using the Solar Winds Orion MIB browser to try and identify the CPUs on a Catalyst 6509-E switch. NPM reports that the switch has five CPUs, one of which is at 98% utilization. I got down into the CISCO-PROCESS-MIB and found what I believe are the five CPU instances, labeled as cpmCPUTotalPhysicalIndex.1, .2, .3, .4 and .5. Each of these has a value reported: 7017, 7001, 3001, 2001, 1001 respectively. Problem for me is that I don't know what these values represent, so I'm no further ahead in troubleshooting the high-utilization CPU.

Does anybody have any experience with this sort of thing?
