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_FileSpecification WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


Win32_FileSpecification

Description

The Win32_FileSpecification WMI class represents a source file with its various attributes, ordered by a unique, non-localized identifier. For uncompressed files, the File property is ignored, and the FileName property is used for both source and destination file name. You must set the Uncompressed bit of the Attributes property for any file that is not compressed in a cabinet.

Example(s)

$computer = "LocalHost" 
$namespace = "root\CIMV2" 
Get-WmiObject -class Win32_FileSpecification -computername $computer -namespace $namespace
