Can we monitor CPU & Memory usage of Windows boxes through RRDtool on Linux (RHEL 3)?


This is my first post on this forum. I am not sure whether this is the correct forum to post this query, but I could not find any other forum more appropriate than this.

I have RRDtool 1.2.19 installed on RHEL WS 3 which I am currently using to monitor and plot the CPU, Memory & Disk usages on my Linux & Solaris boxes using bash scripts which periodically rsh to the Linux & Solaris boxes and gets the values of the monitored parameters through crontab.

I would like to monitor the same parameters on my Windows boxes too. Is it posible to monitor these parameters through RRDtool from the same RHEL WS 3 machine? If yes, could anyone let me know how and if no, could anyone please give me any pointers as to how can I monitor the Windows boxes?

Do you have an SNMP agent running on the windows boxes ? if so then yes you should be able to.

heres an article about using rrdtool to monitor the CPU of a MS SQL Server

Have you looked at cacti as well ?
Cacti is a complete network graphing solution designed to harness the power of RRDTool's data storage and graphing functionality. Cacti provides a fast poller, advanced graph templating, multiple data acquisition methods, and user management features out of the box. All of this is wrapped in an intuitive, easy to use interface that makes sense for LAN-sized installations up to complex networks with hundreds of devices.
