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