We’ve got quite a lot of 2008 and 2008 R2 VMs. I’m having problems with the CPU % processor time metric. For 2008 servers it’s ‘Processor – % Processor Time’, but for 2008 R2 servers it’s ‘Processor Information / % Processor Time’. This means on the Server 2008 perspective that I often have a blank CPU graph, depending on which metric is selected and whether it’s an R2 or non R2 server!

Is there a way I can pick one metric that will show % Processor Time regardless of whether it’s 2008 or 2008 R2? I tried to create a 2008 R2 perspective, but that resulted in all of the 2008 Non R2 computers having no CPU information 😕
