WMI Provider Extensions
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) allows computer components and applications to expose properties and configuration settings so that external applications can access and/or update the values. WMI also allows applications to expose methods that external applications can call to perform an operation. A WMI provider is used to expose properties and methods so that an application can be monitored and managed by external programs and scripts.
WMI Provider Extensions allow you to easily create a WMI provider by adding attributes to a class that contains the properties, configuration settings, and methods that you want to expose through WMI.
Describes the most common scenarios in which WMI providers are implemented.
