performance counter

A property in a performance class that is derived from Win32_PerfRawData that stores performance data.

performance object

An object in a performance library that stores data in counters. These objects are visible in the System Monitor utility. Examples are Cache and Logical Disk objects. When transferred into WMI by the ADAP process, each object becomes two WMI performance classes. One class, containing raw data, derives from Win32_PerfRawData. The other class derives from Win32_PerfFormattedData and contains the same data visible in System Monitor as calculated by the Cooked Counter provider.

permanent consumer

An event consumer whose registration lasts until it is explicitly canceled. Also see temporary consumer.

physical consumer

A COM object that is implemented by an event consumer provider that includes a sink for receiving event notifications.

property

A name/value pair that describes a unit of data for a class. Property values must have a valid Managed Object Format (MOF) data type. Also see reference property.

property provider

A COM server that supports the retrieval and modification of WMI properties. Property providers implement the IWbemProviderInit and IWbemPropertyProvider interfaces.

provider

A COM server that communicates with managed objects to access data and event notifications, such as the registry or an SNMP device. Providers forward this data to the CIM Object Manager for integration and interpretation.

provider method

A method that a WMI provider implements.
