I found the following OIDs. They work perfectly in Windows7 and Windows Server Enterprise.

Consolidated CPU load (%)-----

Available RAM (KBytes)-----

However, when I query a Windows Server R2 DataCenter machine, I always get the error about being past the end of the MIB Tree, and there's no value returned. I *really* don't want to do something like install Informant on 100 Windows machines. is there another OID I can use, that is more common, and will work on all my operating systems I'm using it to build a hi-CPU, and hi-memory-util threshold. Thanks!

have you looked at our Windows zenpack SNMP on Windows is deprecated and is going to be removed/not be supported by Microsoft. I'd suggest using WinRM/WinRS for monitoring

Interesting.... We spent alot of time & effort getting SNMP on all 100+ of our Windows machines, so I can't say that we're ready to abandon it. Will the Windows Zenpack provide addn'l OIDs that can be used to monitor CPU

Those OID's you posted are specific to SNMP informant. I wouldn't use SNMP for windows monitoring without SNMP Informant, unless you don't care about aggregate memory or CPU utilization. If you are able to do remote deployments you can easily run the install by placing the following in a script that you deploy with psexec, winrs, etc

Someone on the forums here said that they compile their own values for 'free memory' by querying 'memory-used-by-each-PID", adding that together, and subtracting it from 'total memory'. (Whereas that value can be obtained directly, but only with Informant installed). If there's a way to write a formula, or expression that lets me do the same, would be great. I could obtain values for CPU-util (across multiple cores), as well as free memory that way.

There's a community ZenPack that gathers windows performance statistics over SNMP without informant installed, called Windows SNMP Performance Monitor (Advanced). You have to place your machines into the organizers by number of processors in order for it to work. I haven't tried it so I can't comment on its functionality.
