CIM_Slot class

The CIM_Slot class represents connectors into which packages are inserted. For example, a physical package that is a disk drive can be inserted into an SCA slot, or a card (a subclass of CIM_PhysicalPackage) can be inserted into a 16-, 32-, or 64-bit expansion slot on a hosting board. PCI or PCMCIA Type III Slots are examples of the latter.

Important  The DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) CIM (Common Information Model) classes are the parent classes upon which WMI classes are built. WMI currently supports only the CIM 2.x version schemas.
 

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all of its inherited properties. Properties are listed in alphabetic order, not MOF order.

CreationClassName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: CIM_Key, MaxLen (256)

Name of the class or subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with other key properties of the class, this property allows all instances of the class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Description")

Textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

HeightAllowed

Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units ("inches")

Maximum height, in inches, of an adapter card that can be inserted into the slot.

InstallDate
Data type: datetime
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|ComponentID|001.5"), DisplayName ("Install Date")

Date and time the object was installed. This property does not need a value to indicate that the object is installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

LengthAllowed
Data type: real32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units ("inches")

Maximum length, in inches, of an adapter card that can be inserted into the slot.

Manufacturer
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (256)

Organization that produced the physical element. For more information, see the Vendor property of CIM_Product.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

MaxDataWidth
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|System Slot|004.3"), Units ("bits")

Maximum bus width, in bits, of adapter cards that can be inserted into the slot.

Model
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Name by which the physical element is generally known.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: DisplayName ("Name")

Label by which the object is known. When subclassed, this property can be overridden to be a key property.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Number
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only

Physical slot number, which can be used as an index into a system slot table, to determine whether the slot is physically occupied.

OtherIdentifyingInfo
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

Additional data, beyond asset tag information, that can be used to identify a physical element. One example is bar-code data that is associated with an element, which also has an asset tag. Note that if only bar-code data is available, and is unique and able to be used as an element key, this property would be null and the bar-code data would be used as the class key in the Tag property.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

PartNumber
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (256)

Part number assigned by the organization that produced or manufactured the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

PoweredOn
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the physical element is powered on.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

PurposeDescription
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_Slot.SpecialPurpose")

Free-form string that describes how this slot is physically unique and that it may hold special types of hardware. This property only has meaning when the corresponding Boolean SpecialPurpose property is set to TRUE.

SerialNumber
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Manufacturer-allocated number used to identify the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

SKU
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Stock-keeping unit number for the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

SpecialPurpose
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_Slot.PurposeDescription")

If TRUE, the slot is physically unique and may hold special types of hardware, (for example, a graphics processor slot). If TRUE, the PurposeDescription property should specify how the slot is unique or the slot's purpose.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (10), DisplayName ("Status")

Current status of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Values include the following:

OK ("OK")

Error ("Error")

Degraded ("Degraded")

Unknown ("Unknown")

Pred Fail ("Pred Fail")

Starting ("Starting")

Stopping ("Stopping")

Service ("Service")

Stressed ("Stressed")

NonRecover ("NonRecover")

No Contact ("No Contact")

Lost Comm ("Lost Comm")

SupportsHotPlug
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

If TRUE, the slot supports hot-plugging of adapter cards.

Tag
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: CIM_Key, MaxLen (256)

Arbitrary string that uniquely identifies the physical element and serves as the element's key. This property can contain information, such as asset tag or serial number data. The key for CIM_PhysicalElement is placed very high in the object hierarchy to independently identify the hardware/entity, regardless of physical placement in (or on) cabinets, adapters, and so on. For example, a removable component that can be hot-swapped can be taken from its containing (scoping) package and be temporarily unused. The object still continues to exist and can even be inserted into a different scoping container. The key for a physical element is an arbitrary string that is defined independently of placement or location-oriented hierarchy.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

ThermalRating
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|System Slot|004.11"), Units ("milliwatts")

Maximum thermal dissipation of the slot, in milliwatts.

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|System Slot|004.9")

Vcc voltage supported by the slot.

3.3V (2)

5V (3)

Version
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (64)

Version of the physical element.

This property is inherited from CIM_PhysicalElement.

VppMixedVoltageSupport
