InstrumentationType Enumeration

 

Specifies the type of instrumentation provided by a class.

Note: the WMI .NET libraries are now considered in final state, and no further development, enhancements, or updates will be available for non-security related issues affecting these libraries. The MI APIs should be used for all new development.

Namespace:   System.Management.Instrumentation
Assembly:  System.Management (in System.Management.dll)

public enum InstrumentationType

Member nameDescription
Abstract

The class defines an abstract class for management instrumentation.

Event

The class provides events for management instrumentation.

Instance

The class provides instances for management instrumentation.

The following example demonstrates how to create a management event class by using the InstrumentationType enumeration.

using System;
using System.Management;
using System.Configuration.Install;
using System.Management.Instrumentation;

// This example demonstrates how to create
// a management event class by using
// the InstrumentationType enumeration

// Specify which namespace the management event
// class is created in
[assembly:Instrumented("Root/Default")]

// Let the system know you will run
// InstallUtil.exe tool against this assembly
[System.ComponentModel.RunInstaller(true)]
public class MyInstaller : 
    DefaultManagementProjectInstaller {}

namespace WMISample
{
    // Create a management instrumentation event class
    [InstrumentationClass(InstrumentationType.Event)]
    public class MyEvent
    {
        private string EventName;
        public void setEventName(string name)
        {
            EventName = name;
        }
    }

    public class WMIInstrumentedEventExample
    {
        public static void Main() 
        {
            MyEvent e = new MyEvent();
            e.setEventName("Hello");

            // Fire a management event
            Instrumentation.Fire(e);        
            return;
        }
    }
}
