    WMI statistic data inaccurate?

      I have been trying to wrap my head around wmi for the last couple of days, but I have not been successful.   The thing that is bothering me is that none of the wmi performance monitoring counters return valid statistics.   I never see anything in any of the fields that APM is trying to monitor.

       Digging deeper into WMI than I wanted to, I have found that Win32_PerfrawData actually mirrors perfmon pretty closely.  But on my machines, Win32_PerfFormattedData mostly returns zeros.  Since most of the WMI Counters with APM require the cooked data, none of the statistics are even close.  All I get are Zeros.

       Is anyone else seeing this, or is this a drawback to the wmi counters?   This occurs with all my servers.
