I need to monitor cpu load or %utilized on a Windows 2008 client via NRPE.

I've tried the internal NSCP(NSClient++) CheckCPU test, which does run, but won't return performance data (bug report filed).

I've tried "cpuload_nrpe_nt.exe" from the NRPE_NT_Perf package.  It runs, but consistently returns "0% used" reguardless of the load I place on the machine.

I've tried Check_CPUTime, which does report performance data, but not in a format that follows the "developer guidelines", ie nothing follows a "|" symbol.

I'm suspecting there's something about Windows 2008 that giving me problems here.

Several plugins are available if I were using snmp, but I'm not.

Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks...Lyle
