System.Management.Instrumentation Namespace

Provides the classes necessary for instrumenting applications for management and exposing their management information and events through WMI to potential consumers. Consumers such as Microsoft Application Center or Microsoft Operations Manager can then manage your application easily, and monitoring and configuring of your application is available for administrator scripts or other applications, both managed as well as unmanaged. Instrumentation of your application is easy to achieve using the InstrumentationClass custom attribute on classes you wish to expose, or using the provided BaseEvent and Instance base classes and the Instrumentation helper class.

  ClassDescription
Public classBaseEventRepresents classes derived from BaseEvent that are known to be management event classes. These derived classes inherit an implementation of IEvent that allows events to be fired through the Fire method.
Public classDefaultManagementInstallerInstalls an instrumented assembly. To use this default project installer, simply derive a class from DefaultManagementInstaller inside the assembly. No methods need to be overridden.
Public classDefaultManagementProjectInstallerInstalls an instrumented assembly. To use this default project installer, derive a class from DefaultManagementProjectInstaller inside the assembly. No methods need to be overridden.
Public classIgnoreMemberAttributeCauses the associated member of an instrumented class to be ignored by management instrumentation.
Public classInstanceRepresents derived classes known to be management instrumentation instance classes. These derived classes inherit an implementation of IInstance that allows instances to be published through the Published property.
Public classInstanceNotFoundExceptionThe exception thrown to indicate that no instances are returned by a provider.
Public classInstrumentationProvides helper functions for exposing events and data for management. There is a single instance of this class per application domain.
Public classInstrumentationBaseExceptionRepresents the base provider-related exception.
Public classInstrumentationClassAttributeSpecifies that a class provides event or instance instrumentation.
Public classInstrumentationExceptionRepresents a provider-related exception.
Public classInstrumentationManagerProvides methods that manage the lifetime and the model used for decoupled providers.
Public classInstrumentedAttributeSpecifies that this assembly provides management instrumentation. This attribute should appear one time per assembly.
Public classManagedCommonProviderThe class is used internally by the WMI.NET Provider Extensions infrastructure.
Public classManagedNameAttributeAllows an instrumented class, or member of an instrumented class, to present an alternate name through management instrumentation.
Public classManagementBindAttributeThe ManagementBind attribute indicates that a method is used to return the instance of a WMI class associated with a specific key value.
Public classManagementCommitAttributeThe ManagementCommit attribute marks a method that is called when it is necessary to update a set of read-write properties in one, atomic operation.
Public classManagementConfigurationAttributeThe ManagementConfiguration attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-write WMI property.
Public classManagementCreateAttributeThe ManagementCreateAttribute is used to indicate that a method creates a new instance of a managed entity.
Public classManagementEntityAttributeThe ManagementEntity attribute indicates that a class provides management information exposed through a WMI provider.
Public classManagementEnumeratorAttributeThe ManagementEnumerator attribute marks a method that returns all the instances of a WMI class.
Public classManagementInstallerInstalls instrumented assemblies. Include an instance of this installer class in the project installer for an assembly that includes instrumentation.
Public classManagementKeyAttributeThe ManagementKey attribute identifies the key properties of a WMI class.
Public classManagementMemberAttributeThis class is used by the WMI.NET Provider Extensions framework. It is the base class for all the management attributes that can be applied to members.
Public classManagementNameAttributeThe ManagementName attribute is used to override names exposed through a WMI class.
Public classManagementNewInstanceAttributeThe base class for management attributes that have only run-time functionality and no schema representation. The management attribute classes ManagementBindAttribute, ManagementCreateAttribute and ManagementEnumeratorAttribute are all derived from this class.
Public classManagementProbeAttributeThe ManagementProbe attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-only WMI property.
Public classManagementQualifierAttributeThe ManagementQualifier attribute contains additional WMI provider-related information about an associated WMI class, instance, property, field or method.
Public classManagementReferenceAttributeThe ManagementReferenceAttribute marks a class member, property or method parameter as a reference to another management object or class.
Public classManagementRemoveAttributeThe ManagementRemoveAttribute is used to indicate that a method cleans up an instance of a managed entity.
Public classManagementTaskAttributeThe ManagementTask attribute indicates that the target method implements a WMI method.
Public classWmiConfigurationAttributeThe WmiConfiguration attribute indicates that an assembly contains code that implements a WMI provider by using the WMI.NET Provider Extensions model. The attribute accepts parameters that establish the high-level configuration of the implemented WMI provider.
Public classWmiProviderInstallationExceptionRepresents an exception to throw when WMI provider installation fails.
  InterfaceDescription
Public interfaceIEventSpecifies a source of a management instrumentation event. Objects that implement this interface are known to be sources of management instrumentation events. Classes that do not derive from BaseEvent should implement this interface instead.
Public interfaceIInstanceSpecifies a source of a management instrumentation instance. Objects that implement this interface are known to be sources of management instrumentation instances. Classes that do not derive from Instance should implement this interface instead.
  EnumerationDescription
Public enumerationInstrumentationTypeSpecifies the type of instrumentation provided by a class.
Public enumerationManagementConfigurationTypeRepresents the possible commit behaviors of a read/write property. It is used as the value of a parameter of the ManagementConfigurationAttribute attribute.
Public enumerationManagementHostingModelDefines values that specify the hosting model for the provider.
Public enumerationManagementQualifierFlavorsQualifier flavors that can be used with WMI provider extensions.
