Properties

The NumericSensor class has these properties.

Accuracy
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Units ("Hundredths of Percent"), MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.19", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.19", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.19")

Indicates the accuracy of the Sensor for the measured property. Its value is recorded as plus/minus hundredths of a percent. Accuracy, along with Resolution, is used to calculate the actual value of the measured physical property. Accuracy may vary depending on whether the Device is linear over its dynamic range.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

AdditionalAvailability
Data type: uint16 array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_LogicalDevice.Availability")

Additional availability and status of the Device, beyond that specified in the Availability property. The Availability property denotes the primary status and availability of the Device. In some cases, this will not be sufficient to denote the complete status of the Device. In those cases, the AdditionalAvailability property can be used to provide further information. For example, a Device's primary Availability may be "Off line" (value=8), but it may also be in a low power state (AdditonalAvailability value=14), or the Device could be running Diagnostics (AdditionalAvailability value=5, "In Test").

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_AssociatedPowerManagementService.PowerState", "CIM_ManagedSystemElement.OperationalStatus", "CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.EnabledState"), MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Operational State|006.5", "MIB.IETF|HOST-RESOURCES-MIB.hrDeviceStatus", "MIF.DMTF|Host Device|001.5"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_LogicalDevice.AdditionalAvailability")

The primary availability and status of the Device. (Additional status information can be specified using the AdditionalAvailability array property.) For example, the Availability property indicates that the Device is running and has full power (value=3), or is in a warning (4), test (5), degraded (10) or power save state (values 13-15 and 17). Regarding the Power Save states, these are defined as follows: Value 13 ("Power Save - Unknown") indicates that the Device is known to be in a power save mode, but its exact status in this mode is unknown; 14 ("Power Save - Low Power Mode") indicates that the Device is in a power save state but still functioning, and may exhibit degraded performance; 15 ("Power Save - Standby") describes that the Device is not functioning but could be brought to full power 'quickly'; and value 17 ("Power Save - Warning") indicates that the Device is in a warning state, though also in a power save mode.

BaseUnits
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_NumericSensor.UnitModifier", "CIM_NumericSensor.RateUnits")

The base unit of the values returned by this Sensor. All the values returned by this Sensor are represented in the units obtained by (BaseUnits * 10 raised to the power of the UnitModifier). For example, if BaseUnits is Volts and the UnitModifier is -6, then the units of the values returned are MicroVolts. However, if the RateUnits property is set to a value other than "None", then the units are further qualified as rate units. In the above example, if RateUnits is set to "Per Second", then the values returned by the Sensor are in MicroVolts/Second. The units apply to all numeric properties of the Sensor, unless explicitly overridden by the Units qualifier.

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

The Caption property is a short textual description (one- line string) of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

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

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

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

CurrentReading
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.5", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.5", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.5")

The current value indicated by the Sensor.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

CurrentState
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (128)

The current state indicated by the Sensor. This is always one of the "PossibleStates".

This property is inherited from CIM_Sensor.

Description
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

The Description property provides a textual description of the object.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

DeviceID
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Key, MaxLen (64)

An address or other identifying information to uniquely name the LogicalDevice.

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

ElementName
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only

A user-friendly name for the object. This property allows each instance to define a user-friendly name IN ADDITION TO its key properties/identity data, and description information.

Note that ManagedSystemElement's Name property is also defined as a user-friendly name. But, it is often subclassed to be a Key. It is not reasonable that the same property can convey both identity and a user friendly name, without inconsistencies. Where Name exists and is not a Key (such as for instances of LogicalDevice), the same information MAY be present in both the Name and ElementName properties.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement.

EnabledDefault

Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.OperationalStatus")

Note  This property is deprecated. Instead we recommend that you use the OperationalStatus property from the CIM_ManagedSystemElement class.
 

Indicates whether an error reported by the LastErrorCode property is cleared. This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

ErrorDescription
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_DeviceErrorData.ErrorDescription")

ErrorDescription is a free-form string supplying more information about the error recorded in LastErrorCode, and information on any corrective actions that may be taken.

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

HealthState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Experimental

Indicates the current health of the element. This attribute expresses the health of this element but not necessarily that of its subcomponents. The possible values are 0 to 30, where 5 means the element is entirely healthy and 30 means the element is completely non-functional. The following continuum is defined:

"Non-recoverable Error" (30) - The element has completed failed and recovery is not possible. All functionality provided by this element has been lost.

"Critical Failure" (25) - The element is non-functional and recovery MAY NOT be possible.

"Major Failure" (20) - The element is failing. It is possible the some or all of the functionality of this component is degraded or not working.

"Minor Failure" (15) - All functionality is available but some MAY be degraded.

"Degraded/Warning" (10) - The element is in working order and all functionality is provided. However, the element is not working to the best of its abilities. For example, the element may not be operating at optimal performance or it may be reporting recoverable errors.

"OK" (5) - The element is fully functional and is operating within normal operational parameters and without error.

"Unknown" (0) - The implementation can not report on HealthState at this time.

DMTF has reserved the unused portion of the continuum for additional HealthStates in the future.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

31–65535
Hysteresis
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only

Indicates the margin built around the thresholds. This margin prevents unnecessary state changes when the Sensor reading may fluctuate very close to its thresholds. This could be due to the Sensor's tolerance/accuracy/resolution or due to environmental factors. Once a threshold is crossed, the state of the Sensor should change. However, the state should not fluctuate between the old and new states unless the Sensor's change in the reading exceeds the Hysteresis value. The units for this measurement are determined by BaseUnit*UnitModifier/RateUnit.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

IdentifyingDescriptions
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_LogicalDevice.OtherIdentifyingInfo")

An array of free-form strings providing explanations and details behind the entries in the OtherIdentifyingInfo array. Note, each entry of this array is related to the entry in OtherIdentifyingInfo that is located at the same index.

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

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

A datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

IsLinear
Data type: boolean
Access type: Read-only

Indicates that the Sensor is linear over its dynamic range.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

LastErrorCode
Data type: uint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_DeviceErrorData.LastErrorCode")

LastErrorCode captures the last error code reported by the LogicalDevice.

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

LowerThresholdCritical
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.13", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.13", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.13")

A value that specifies a range that determines whether the sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is between LowerThresholdCritical and LowerThresholdFatal, then the current state is noncritical. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: 500

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

LowerThresholdFatal
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.15", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.15", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.15")

A value that specifies a range that determines whether the sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical, or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is below LowerThresholdFatal, then the current state is fatal. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: -1279

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

LowerThresholdNonCritical
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read/write
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.11", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.11", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.11")

The Sensor's threshold values specify the ranges (min and max values) for determining whether the Sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is between LowerThresholdNonCritical and UpperThresholdNonCritical, then the Sensor is reporting a normal value. If CurrentReading is between LowerThresholdNonCritical and LowerThresholdCritical, then the CurrentState is NonCritical.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

MaxQuiesceTime
Data type: uint64
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("No value"), Units ("MilliSeconds")

The MaxQuiesceTime property has been deprecated. When evaluating the use of Quiesce, it was determine that this single property is not adequate for describing when a device will automatically exit a quiescent state. In fact, the most likely scenario for a device to exit a quiescent state was determined to be based on the number of outstanding requests queued rather than on a maximum time. This will be re-evaluated and repositioned later.

Maximum time in milliseconds, that a Device can run in a "Quiesced" state. A Device's state is defined in its Availability and AdditionalAvailability properties, where "Quiesced" is conveyed by the value 21. What occurs at the end of the time limit is device-specific. The Device may unquiesce, may offline or take other action. A value of 0 indicates that a Device can remain quiesced indefinitely.

This property is inherited from CIM_LogicalDevice.

The smallest value of the measured property that can be read by the numeric sensor. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: -1279

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

Name
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MaxLen (1024)

The Name property defines the label by which the object is known. When subclassed, the Name property can be overridden to be a Key property.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

NominalReading
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.6", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.6", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.6")

NominalReading indicates the 'normal' or expected value for the NumericSensor.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

NormalMax
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.7", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.7", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.7")

NormalMax provides guidance for the user as to the normal maximum range for the NumericSensor.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

NormalMin
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.8", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.8", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.8")

NormalMin provides guidance for the user as to the normal minimum range for the NumericSensor.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

OperationalStatus
Data type: uint16 array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.StatusDescriptions")

Indicates the current status(es) of the element. Various operational statuses are defined. Many of the enumeration's values are self- explanatory. However, a few are not and are described in more detail.

"Stressed" indicates that the element is functioning, but needs attention. Examples of "Stressed" states are overload, overheated, etc.

"Predictive Failure" indicates that an element is functioning nominally but predicting a failure in the near future.

"In Service" describes an element being configured, maintained, cleaned, or otherwise administered.

"No Contact" indicates that the monitoring system has knowledge of this element, but has never been able to establish communications with it.

"Lost Communication" indicates that the ManagedSystemElement is known to exist and has been contacted successfully in the past, but is currently unreachable.

"Stopped" and "Aborted" are similar, although the former implies a clean and orderly stop, while the latter implies an abrupt stop where the element's state and configuration may need to be updated.

"Dormant" indicates that the element is inactive or quiesced.

"Supporting Entity in Error" describes that this element may be "OK" but that another element, on which it is dependent, is in error. An example is a network service or endpoint that cannot function due to lower layer networking problems.

"Completed" indicates the element has completed its operation. This value should be combined with either OK, Error, or Degraded so that a client can till if the complete operation passed (Completed with OK), and failure (Completed with Error). Completed with Degraded would imply the operation finished, but did not complete OK or report an error.

"Power Mode" indicates the element has additional power model information contained in the Associated PowerManagementService association.

OperationalStatus replaces the Status property on ManagedSystemElement to provide a consistent approach to enumerations, to address implementation needs for an array property, and to provide a migration path from today's environment to the future. This change was not made earlier since it required the DEPRECATED qualifier. Due to the widespread use of the existing Status property in management applications, it is strongly RECOMMENDED that providers/instrumentation provide BOTH the Status and OperationalStatus properties. Further, the first value of OperationalStatus SHOULD contain the primary status for the element. When instrumented, Status (since it is single-valued) SHOULD also provide the primary status of the element.

Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_NumericSensor.UnitModifier", "CIM_NumericSensor.BaseUnits")

Specifies if the units returned by this Sensor are rate units. All the values returned by this Sensor are represented in the units obtained by (BaseUnits * 10 raised to the power of the UnitModifier). This is true unless this property (RateUnits) has a value different than None (0). For example, if BaseUnits is Volts (5) and the UnitModifier is -6, then the units of the values returned are MicroVolts. But, if the RateUnits property is set to a value other than None (0), then the units are further qualified as rate units. In the above example, if RateUnits is set to Per Second (3), then the values returned by the Sensor are in MicroVolts/Second. The units apply to all numeric properties of the Sensor, unless explicitly overridden by the Units qualifier. Any implementation of CurrentReading should be qualified with either a Counter or a Gauge qualifier, depending on the characteristics of the sensor being modeled.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

RequestedState
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.EnabledState")

RequestedState is an integer enumeration that indicates the last requested or desired state for the element. The actual state of the element is represented by EnabledState. This property is provided to compare the last requested and current enabled or disabled states. Note that when EnabledState is set to 5 ("Not Applicable"), then this property has no meaning. By default, the RequestedState of the element is 5 ("No Change"). Refer to the EnabledState property description for explanations of the values in the RequestedState enumeration. It should be noted that there are two new values in RequestedState that build on the statuses of EnabledState. These are "Reboot" (10) and "Reset" (11). Reboot refers to doing a "Shut Down" and then moving to an "Enabled" state. Reset indicates that the element is first "Disabled" and then "Enabled". The distinction between requesting "Shut Down" and "Disabled" should also be noted. Shut Down requests an orderly transition to the Disabled state, and might involve removing power, to completely erase any existing state. The Disabled state requests an immediate disabling of the element, such that it will not execute or accept any commands or processing requests. This property is set as the result of a method invocation (such as StartService or StopService on CIM_Service), or can be overridden and defined as WRITEable in a subclass. The method approach is considered superior to a WRITEable property, because it allows an explicit invocation of the operation and the return of a result code. A particular instance of CIM_EnabledLogicalElement might not support RequestStateChange. If this occurs, the value 12 ("Not Applicable") is used.

Resolution indicates the ability of the Sensor to resolve differences in the measured property. The units for this measurement are determined by BaseUnit*UnitModifier/RateUnit.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

SensorType
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_Sensor.OtherSensorTypeDescription")

The Type of the Sensor, e.g. Voltage or Temperature Sensor. If the type is set to "Other", then the OtherSensorType Description can be used to further identify the type, or if the Sensor has numeric readings, then the type of the Sensor can be implicitly determined by the Units. A description of the different Sensor types is as follows: A Temperature Sensor measures the environmental temperature. Voltage and Current Sensors measure electrical voltage and current readings. A Tachometer measures speed/revolutions of a Device. For example, a Fan Device can have an associated Tachometer which measures its speed. A Counter is a general purpose Sensor that measures some numerical property of a Device. A Counter value can be cleared, but it never decreases. A Switch Sensor has states like Open/Close, On/Off, or Up/Down. A Lock has states of Locked/Unlocked. Humidity, Smoke Detection and Air Flow Sensors measure the equivalent environmental characteristics. A Presence Sensor detects the presence of a PhysicalElement.

Status
Data type: string
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.OperationalStatus"), MaxLen (10)

A string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses are defined. This property is deprecated in lieu of OperationalStatus, which includes the same semantics in its enumeration. This change is made for 3 reasons: 1) Status is more correctly defined as an array. This overcomes the limitation of describing status via a single value, when it is really a multi-valued property (for example, an element may be OK AND Stopped. 2) A MaxLen of 10 is too restrictive and leads to unclear enumerated values. And, 3) The change to a uint16 data type was discussed when CIM V2.0 was defined. However, existing V1.0 implementations used the string property and did not want to modify their code. Therefore, Status was grandfathered into the Schema. Use of the Deprecated qualifier allows the maintenance of the existing property, but also permits an improved definition using OperationalStatus.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

StatusDescriptions
Data type: string array
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ArrayType ("Indexed"), ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_ManagedSystemElement.OperationalStatus")

Strings describing the various OperationalStatus array values. For example, if "Stopping" is the value assigned to OperationalStatus, then this property may contain an explanation as to why an object is being stopped. Note that entries in this array are correlated with those at the same array index in OperationalStatus.

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

StatusInfo
Data type: uint16
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_EnabledLogicalElement.EnabledState"), MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Operational State|006.4")

The StatusInfo property indicates whether the Logical Device is in an enabled (value = 3), disabled (value = 4) or some other (1) or unknown (2) state. If this property does not apply to the LogicalDevice, the value, 5 ("Not Applicable"), should be used. StatusInfo has been deprecated in lieu of a more clearly named property with additional enumerated values (EnabledState), that is inherited from ManagedSystemElement.

If a Device is ("Enabled")(value=3), it has been powered up, and is configured and operational. The Device may or may not be functionally active, depending on whether its Availability (or AdditionalAvailability) indicate that it is ("Running/Full Power")(value=3) or ("Off line") (value=8). In an enabled but offline mode, a Device may be performing out-of-band requests, such as running Diagnostics. If ("Disabled") StatusInfo value=4), a Device can only be "enabled" or powered off. In a personal computer environment, ("Disabled") means that the Device's driver is not available in the stack. In other environments, a Device can be disabled by removing its configuration file. A disabled device is physically present in a System and consuming resources, but can not be communicated with until a load of a driver, a load of a configuration file or some other "enabling" activity has occurred.

Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: Deprecated ("CIM_NumericSensor.Resolution", "CIM_NumericSensor.Accuracy")

This property is being deprecated in lieu of using the Resolution and Accuracy properties.

UnitModifier
Data type: sint32
Access type: Read-only
Qualifiers: ModelCorrespondence ("CIM_NumericSensor.BaseUnits", "CIM_NumericSensor.RateUnits")

The unit multiplier for the values returned by this Sensor. All the values returned by this Sensor are represented in the units obtained by (BaseUnits * 10 raised to the power of the UnitModifier). For example, if BaseUnits is Volts (5) and the UnitModifier is -6, then the units of the values returned are MicroVolts. However, if the RateUnits property is set to a value other than "None", then the units are further qualified as rate units. In the above example, if RateUnits is set to Per Second (3), then the values returned by the Sensor are in MicroVolts/Second. The units apply to all numeric properties of the Sensor, unless explicitly overridden by the Units qualifier.

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.14", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.14", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.14")

A value that specifies a range that determines whether the sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical, or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is between UpperThresholdCritical and UpperThresholdFatal, then the current state is critical. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: 550

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.16", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.16", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.16")

A value that specifies a range that determines whether the sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical, or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is above UpperThresholdFatal, then the current state is fatal. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: 1270

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

Qualifiers: MappingStrings ("MIF.DMTF|Temperature Probe|002.12", "MIF.DMTF|Electrical Current Probe|001.12", "MIF.DMTF|Voltage Probe|001.12")

A value that specifies a range that determines whether the sensor is operating under Normal, NonCritical, Critical, or Fatal conditions. If CurrentReading is between UpperThresholdNonCritical and UpperThresholdCritical, then the current state is noncritical. This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor.

Example: 500

This property is inherited from CIM_NumericSensor .

Remarks

All values returned by the numeric sensor are represented in the units obtained by the BaseUnits property, multiplied by 10, raised to the power of the UnitModifier property. For example, if BaseUnits is volts and UnitModifier is -6, then the units of the values returned are microvolts. However, if the RateUnits property is set to a value other than "None", then the units are further qualified as rate units. In the above example, if RateUnits is set to "Per second", then the values returned by the sensor are in microvolts/second.
