Win32-ComputerSystemProduct - WMI Perl sample

The foundations for Manageability in Windows 2019/2016/2012/2008 and Windows 10/7/XP 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_ComputerSystemProduct WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.



The Win32_ComputerSystemProduct WMI class represents a product. This includes software and hardware used on this computer system.
