The SMS_MeteredProductRule Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in Configuration Manager, that represents the rules that describe which files to meter.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.


Class SMS_MeteredProductRule : SMS_BaseClass
{
      Boolean ApplyToChildSites;
      String Comment;
      Boolean Enabled;
      String FileName;
      String FileVersion;
      UInt32 LanguageID;
      DateTime LastUpdateTime;
      String OriginalFileName;
      String ProductName;
      UInt32 RuleID;
      String SecurityKey;
      String SiteCode;
      String SourceSite;
};

The SMS_MeteredProductRule class does not define any methods.

ApplyToChildSites
Data type: Boolean

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2113), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

true (default) if the rule is applied to child sites.

Comment
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2111), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Comment describing the rule.

Enabled
Data type: Boolean

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2108), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

true if the rule is enabled. Data is only collected by the client if the rule is enabled.

FileName
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2105), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Name of the file to be metered. This property is used for matching.

FileVersion
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2106),ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Version of the file being metered. This property is used for matching and matches to the FileVersion property stored in the file version information. It can contain wildcards, such as * (match multiple characters) and ? (match a single character). An empty FileVersion property only matches to those executable files that have no version.

LanguageID
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2107), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll"), Subtype("Locale Id")]

Language ID of the rule being metered. This property matches the Language property stored in the file version information. If it is set to 65535, it matches any language.

LastUpdateTime
Data type: DateTime

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2110), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Last time the rule definition was changed.

OriginalFileName
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2104), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Original file name. This property is used for matching and matches the OriginalFileName property stored in the file version information. Because FileName is the Resource Explorer name of the file and might be changed by users, OriginalFileName is used to ensure that the file is metered.

ProductName
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2102), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Name of the product being metered. This is the display name of the rule and is not used in matching.

RuleID
Data type: UInt32

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [key, ResID(2101), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

ID for the rule.

SecurityKey
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2103), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Security key for the rule.

SiteCode
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2109), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Site code of the site on which the rule runs. The rule applies to clients of this site and to the clients of child sites if ApplyToChildSites is set to true.

SourceSite
Data type: String

Access type: Read/Write

Qualifiers: [ResID(2112), ResDLL("SMS_RSTT.dll")]

Site where the rule was created.

Class qualifiers for this class include:

For more information about both the class qualifiers and the property qualifiers included in the Properties section, see Configuration Manager Class and Property Qualifiers.

Software metering rules instruct the Software Metering Agent which processes to monitor on the client. Your application creates a new rule by creating an instance of this class. The following properties of this class have to be provided:

  • ProductName

  • FileName

  • OriginalFileName

  • FileVersion

  • LanguageID

  • SiteCode

  • ApplyToChildSites

  • Enabled

The Comment property is optional. OriginalFileName can be used instead of FileName, both can be supplied, or FileName only can be supplied. If either the FileName value or the OriginalFileName value matches the file, the file is metered.

No other properties should be supplied.
