MSPower perl sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is 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. The MSPower WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.

Sample Code

use Win32::OLE('in');

my $computer = ".";

my $objWMIService = Win32::OLE->GetObject("winmgmts:\\\\$computer\\root\\WMI") or die "WMI connection failed.\n";
my $colItems = $objWMIService->ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM MSPower_DeviceEnable", "WQL");

foreach my $objItem (in $colItems) {
	print "Active: $objItem->{Active}\n";
	print "Enable: $objItem->{Enable}\n";
	print "InstanceName: $objItem->{InstanceName}\n";
	print "\n";
	print "########\n";
	print "\n";
