I use WMI along with MRTG and VBScripts. Here is the VBScript I use
to call
with MRTG and the MRTG Config file...

VBScript call to WMI:

On Error Resume Next
Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
strComputer = objArgs.item(0)
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from
For Each objItem in colItems
    Wscript.Echo "" & objItem.LoadPercentage
    Wscript.Echo "" & objItem.LoadPercentage

MRTG cfg:

Target[SERVERNAME.processorLoad]: `cscript //nologo
D:\mrtg\bin\VB_Scripts\CPULoadSP.vbs SERVER NETBIOS NAME HERE`

I monitor just over 100 Windows 2000 and 2003 server this way. I had
tons of
issues with SNMP and Windows and found this to be the best way to
Windows servers. WMI RULES! Get Scriptomatic from Microsoft as well.
It's a
free WMI scripting tool. All of the counters you get in Performance
are available through WMI. I monitor my MS SQL and IIS Counters
through WMI
as well.

Good Luck!
