Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process 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 Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfProc_Process "cooked" data performance counter class represents calculated counters that monitor running application program and system processes. All the threads in a process share the same address space and have access to the same data. This class is shown as the Process object in System Monitor. The WMI source of its data is the high-performance Cooked Counter Provider. This class derives its raw data from the corresponding raw class Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process. The original data source is the PerfProc performance library. This class was added for Windows XP.
