Is there a way to centrally monitor CPU and Memory statistics on Dell switches?

We have Dell 33xx 34xx 60xx series switches.  Since we've been experiencing some packet loss issues we'd like to somehow pinpoint the problem, our latest assumption is that we're having issues due to high CPU utilization on the switches but we lack the data to back this up.  Dell said they don't have an SNMP OID to support cpu/memory data collection - but I can't believe that a managed switch would lack that sort of data mining capabilities.  

Granted, we know that Cisco switches are the way to go - we just purchased these because of their price point.

So is there any way to centrally monitor/collect CPU and memory statistics from Dell PowerConnect switches?

Its been a while since i have used Dell OpenManage but see if it will collect this info.

My assumption would be they would have built in the industry standard mibs (MIB-II) for this type of collection, but i could be wrong. You could always set up a NMS such as Zenoss or Cacti and point it at the switch to see what you get.
