The above looks okay ... you reported your OS, as you listed in 
periodic.conf, but unless you add 
'monthly_statistics_report_devices="YES"' to /etc/periodic.conf, it won't 
report CPUs or devices ... if you add that line and re-run teh script, it 
won't report a second server, but will update to show the CPUs/Devices ...
