Tool to monitor multiple Windows 2008 servers remotely

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I'm trying to find a tool (ideally free of course) that would allow me to remotely monitor several Windows 2008 r2 machines from my Windows 7 client.
I see under admin tools on my windows 7 machine there is a tool called Server manager that looks like it might work but the docs dont really help a whole lot.  Plus im not sure if that would allow me to monitor the CPU, memory, system health..etc.

What are others using that do what I am looking for?

Thanks

Which values would you like to see in the monitoring tool ??
