Win32_PerfRawData_SMTPSVC_SMTPServer powershell 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_SMTPSVC_SMTPServer WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PerfRawData_SMTPSVC_SMTPServer raw data performance counter classes represents the raw data counters specific to the SMTP Server. This class is found only on server operating systems. This class is shown as the SMTP Server object in System Monitor. The WMI source of its data is the high-performance Performance Counter Provider. The original data source is the SMTPSVC performance library. The corresponding formatted data class is Win32_PerfFormattedData_SMTPSVC_SMTPServer. This class was added for Windows 2000.
