Has anyone explored using the following code and writing the results to PI?  It collects computer hardware information including CPU temp, fan speeds, etc.

The source code is freely available.  My initial thought was to import a library into ACE.  I haven't dug into the code that much but I think it will only retrieve information from the computer the code is running on.  That would limit it to my ACE server which is great but I'd want more.  My next idea would be to write a windows service to dump out a csv file and use UFL to load it into PI.

 

They also expose the data through WMI if you leave their program running.  You could then use the WMI interface to load it into PI.  I'm not sure if I want to leave their program running all the time though.

 

What would I do with this information?  I'm not sure.  It's just interesting to look at.  :)
