Win32_Processor - WMI sample in Powershell

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



The Win32_Processor WMI class represents a device that can interpret a sequence of machine instructions on a computer running a Windows® operating system. On a multiprocessor machine, one instance of the Win32_Processor class exists for each processor.
