For example, the “Windows SNMP”, “Windows NRPE” or “Windows NRPE 0.5” packs allow to monitor Windows servers using in different way. The SNMP protocol can collect generic information (Memory/Swap/CPU/Disk rate usage, state of process, etc.) The NRPE version use the NSClient++ program and can collect generic information but also execute additional plugins to collect more data.
