Possibility to analyse processor utilization?

(imported topic written by Rolf.Wilhelm91)

Dear all,

we have a lot of systems which are LOCKED, because they have things to do for a while and must not be disturbed.

We now had the idea to unlock them using a task or fixlet with some conditions inside and to enable this action for some hours during the weekend (e.g. run only between 02:00 and 05:00 on sundays and saturdays, repeat endless if relevant again). This would ensure that the UNLOCK gets not forgotten. This results in the problem, that the Console with version 6 no longer supports the “lock until” dialog (I know that it is possible to “fix” this with a custom task or fixlet, but it is much more easier for the Admins to lock the system with a right click and therefore this is used as long as I cannot turn this of in the console).

One of the most sufficient things to analyse would be the CPU utilitation of those systems.

Any hints on this?

Found this in the meantime:

following text of first "=" of (property "Loadpercentage" of 
select object "Loadpercentage from WIN32_PROCESSOR where DeviceID='CPU0'" 
of wmi as string) as integer


  • high cost for calculation (is analysing the processor load for 1 second)
  • only looks on first processor even in hyper threaded or multi core environments

any other ideas are appreciated!
