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.

  Class Description
Public class BaseEvent Represents 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 class DefaultManagementInstaller Installs 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 class DefaultManagementProjectInstaller Installs an instrumented assembly. To use this default project installer, derive a class from DefaultManagementProjectInstaller inside the assembly. No methods need to be overridden.
Public class IgnoreMemberAttribute Causes the associated member of an instrumented class to be ignored by management instrumentation.
Public class Instance Represents 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 class InstanceNotFoundException The exception thrown to indicate that no instances are returned by a provider.
Public class Instrumentation Provides helper functions for exposing events and data for management. There is a single instance of this class per application domain.
Public class InstrumentationBaseException Represents the base provider-related exception.
Public class InstrumentationClassAttribute Specifies that a class provides event or instance instrumentation.
Public class InstrumentationException Represents a provider-related exception.
Public class InstrumentationManager Provides methods that manage the lifetime and the model used for decoupled providers.
Public class InstrumentedAttribute Specifies that this assembly provides management instrumentation. This attribute should appear one time per assembly.
Public class ManagedCommonProvider The class is used internally by the WMI.NET Provider Extensions infrastructure.
Public class ManagedNameAttribute Allows an instrumented class, or member of an instrumented class, to present an alternate name through management instrumentation.
Public class ManagementBindAttribute The ManagementBind attribute indicates that a method is used to return the instance of a WMI class associated with a specific key value.
Public class ManagementCommitAttribute The 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 class ManagementConfigurationAttribute The ManagementConfiguration attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-write WMI property.
Public class ManagementCreateAttribute The ManagementCreateAttribute is used to indicate that a method creates a new instance of a managed entity.
Public class ManagementEntityAttribute The ManagementEntity attribute indicates that a class provides management information exposed through a WMI provider.
Public class ManagementEnumeratorAttribute The ManagementEnumerator attribute marks a method that returns all the instances of a WMI class.
Public class ManagementInstaller Installs instrumented assemblies. Include an instance of this installer class in the project installer for an assembly that includes instrumentation.
Public class ManagementKeyAttribute The ManagementKey attribute identifies the key properties of a WMI class.
Public class ManagementMemberAttribute This 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 class ManagementNameAttribute The ManagementName attribute is used to override names exposed through a WMI class.
Public class ManagementNewInstanceAttribute The 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 class ManagementProbeAttribute The ManagementProbe attribute indicates that a property or field represents a read-only WMI property.
Public class ManagementQualifierAttribute The ManagementQualifier attribute contains additional WMI provider-related information about an associated WMI class, instance, property, field or method.
Public class ManagementReferenceAttribute The ManagementReferenceAttribute marks a class member, property or method parameter as a reference to another management object or class.
Public class ManagementRemoveAttribute The ManagementRemoveAttribute is used to indicate that a method cleans up an instance of a managed entity.
Public class ManagementTaskAttribute The ManagementTask attribute indicates that the target method implements a WMI method.
Public class WmiConfigurationAttribute The 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 class WmiProviderInstallationException Represents an exception to throw when WMI provider installation fails.
  Interface Description
Public interface IEvent Specifies 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 interface IInstance Specifies 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.
  Enumeration Description
Public enumeration InstrumentationType Specifies the type of instrumentation provided by a class.
Public enumeration ManagementConfigurationType Represents the possible commit behaviors of a read/write property. It is used as the value of a parameter of the ManagementConfigurationAttribute attribute.
Public enumeration ManagementHostingModel Defines values that specify the hosting model for the provider.
Public enumeration ManagementQualifierFlavors Qualifier flavors that can be used with WMI provider extensions.
