WMI client

WMI, or Windows Management Instrumentation, provides an OS interface to getting and modifying data (on system resources, devices and so on). To facilitate that, specific client software exists (in case built-in Windows scripting capabilities are not enough).

WMI clients, developed for both Windows and non-Windows platforms, allow to perform WMI-enabled actions without involving into complex scripting, also allowing to perform WMI-based control from remote non-Windows platforms. These clients, such as WMI Client for Linux or WMI tools for Windows can allow easy watching and/or changing system parameters, and can also be used to interface with third-party pieces of software (such as monitoring frameworks Nagios or Cacti).
