Tests The Accessibility of WMI Counters

WMI stands for “Windows Management Instrumentation” and is the technology from Microsoft for monitoring and management of Windows based systems.

Paessler WMI Tester works like a database and offers a variety of useful monitoring values of Computers running Microsoft Windows. Products like Paessler’s PRTG Network Monitor make use of the WMI functionality to monitor computers in network environments. WMI allows a process to read out data for many Windows’ configuration parameters as well as current system status values. Access can take place locally or remotely via a network connection. WMI is based on COM and DCOM and is integrated in Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista and later.

As WMI access over a network is not quite trivial, the Paessler WMI Tester is a tool for testing the accessibility of WMI in a quick and easy-to-use way.
