Win32_Process - 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_Process WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.



The Win32_Process WMI class represents a sequence of events on a Windows operating system. A descendent or member of this class is a sequence that consists of an interaction of one or more processors or interpreters, some executable code, and a set of inputs, for example, a client application running on a Windows system.
