Can I setup a web page to display the information of CPU usage


  • I am now working with a 2003 HPC with 20 nodes, and each node is enable with remote desktop. I am wondering that if I can setup a web page, to display CPU load of each node. Thus, the users can avoid the nodes that is fully loaded.

  • In WCCS 2003, we don't collect perf counter values from cluster nodes. I'm afraid you have to write some code like working with  System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter in .NET for that.

    btw, why not try the Windows HPC Server 2008 R2 Beta Program? We can collect interesting perf counter across cluster nodes to head node and show them in HpcClusterManager. To show them in a web page, you just need to create a simple page consuming data out of powershell HPC cmdlet Get-HpcMetricValue. And it might be an interesting code sample to publish in our V3 (Windows HPC Server 2008 R2) SDK.
