Are the built-in WMI CPU sensors reporting correcly for server 2008?



I'm monitoring a Server 2008 R2 file server with PRTG, along with several other machines (2003). There seems to be a significant discrepancy in the Processor load measured by PRTG and those reported by the server performance monitor.

PRTG Version = V7.1.1.3074

Dear Dan,

please update to the most recent version of PRTG (7.3.5), and see if the issues do persist. There is a good chance that the support for Server 2008 has been implemented into the WMI Sensors after 7.1.x

Best Regards.
