Question about check_nt on 2 cpu server

I’ve run into an issue while using check_nt to monitor CPU load on windows servers from my instance of Nagios core. I’m running NSClient 3.8 or 4.3 and it has become apparent that the CPU utilization information I receive back is only ever for CPU 0 and not the total system load. I’ve been able to replicate this issue on multiple systems and I’m wondering if I’m missing a variable  in my config. An example of how I’m using the plugin is:

In the cfg for a system:

define service{
        use                     247service
        host_name               HOSTNAME
        service_description     CPU Load
        check_command           check_nt!CPULOAD!-l 5,80,90

And I’ve defined the command in commands.cfg under objects:

define command{
        command_name    check_nt
        command_line    $USER1$/check_nt -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -p 12489 -s PASSWORD -v $ARG1$ $ARG2$

I’ve checked multiple forums and I’m not seeing a similar reported issue so I’m wondering if I am just missing something obvious.
