Allows access to the Windows Management Instrumentation data, exposed by Windows systems.
The agent supports both local and remote modes.
There is no need to specify a version for the WMI agent.
The following configuration options are available:
User name: User name valid for the remote system, or blank if not required.
Password: Password valid for the remote system, or blank if not required.
Windows Management Instrumentation data is grouped under four large categories:
Hardware: contains information about the physical devices present in a computer
OS: holds information about operating system components such as drivers, users etc
Applications: contains data related to the installed applications
Performance: contains a hierarchy of performance counters exposed by Windows. Do not use the WMI agent to access this data. Instead use the Windows agent which is optimized to retrieve these performance counters.
