win32pdhutil - Returning Processor Information

Hi there,

I am attempting to write a load balancer for a W2K server and am
planning to use the win32pdhutil module to return performance data
about the machine ... however I am not having much luck returning any
information from a 'Processor' object ... but can return instance
information from a 'Memory' object ... I have looked dumbly at this
for a while and if anyone could point out what I am doing here that
would be great

thanks in advance

Ben
