ActiveXperts Network Monitor ships with a large collection of WMI based PowerShell scripts and VBScript scripts to monitor and manage a network.
Use ActiveXperts Netork Monitor to monitor your virtualization servers, domains, computers and devices. It runs on a single Windows server, without agents required on the monitored systems. It has many built-in checks and also allows administrators to create custom checks using PowerShell, VBScript, WMI and SSH.
The foundations for Manageability in Windows 7/2008/Vista/XP/2000 and Millennium Edition/'98 are Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).
ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself.
On this site, you can find many WMI samples.
The Win32_PnPEntity WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.
