It's not equivalent.

load average -- how much processes in the queue.

Mine snmp-counter -- how much processes ticks in work, and how much in idle in time period.

...it's my english. sorry.

No. You say about normal situation and I have not question.
But it's not my situation.
I starting nagios.
Summary CPU Load counter _30%_.
No another task running.
After 24 hours my summary CPU Load -- _80%_.
If I stop the nagios and start him again I get CPU Load 30%.
After another 24 hours I get CPU Load 80% again.
Without any another tasks on this machine in this time.
