Performance data

Hello,
    I am trying to get the current CPU load of a system using the win32
modules, but when I pull the data I get some very small number which seems
to be the CPU load for the machine over a long time (even if I max out the
CPU, I only get small increases in this value).  Anyone have a way to get
the current CPU usage that includes both priveleged and user?

counter = '\Processor(_Total)\% Processor Time'  #This returns the percent
IDLE time, so my result is 100 - value

def queryperfdata(counter):
    machine, object, instance, parentInstance, index, counterName =
win32pdh.ParseCounterPath(counter)
    path = win32pdh.MakeCounterPath( ( machine, object, instance, None,
index, counterName) )
    # if ValidatePath(path) != 0:
        #  return None
    hq = win32pdh.OpenQuery()
    try:
         hc = win32pdh.AddCounter(hq, path)
         try:
             win32pdh.CollectQueryData(hq)
             type, result = win32pdh.GetFormattedCounterValue(hc,
win32pdh.PDH_FMT_DOUBLE)
             return result
         finally:
            win32pdh.RemoveCounter(hc)
    finally:
        win32pdh.CloseQuery(hq)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
