If the node in question requires a domain prefix for the WMI access, prepend that to the
wmiusername followed by a "/", e.g. "
Automatic model selection does include WMI as a source of information, if SNMP is not available and if
wmipassword are set.
We recommend that you verify the availability of WMI (and your credentials) with
wmic, before performing any modelling work. This should be done using the
wmic tool on your NMIS server, like in the following example:
- It is not possible for a
systemHealthsection to have both
This is because only one index per
systemHealthsection is supported, but
snmpcan not share that single index.
- At this time, collection of the following types of statistics from WMI is not supported:
Server-type processor and load information
that for systemhealth stuff, BOTH sys and rrd sections must include indexed => actual field name, not just 'true'
that one systemhealth section can only have snmp or wmi, because one index governs the whole section
inefficiencies, queries are not rewritten to select only specific fields
- NMIS does not yet support service tests for WMI-sourced process information.
- Collection of indexed WMI sections is not optimised for maximum efficiency yet.
query results are reused to some extent but not universally, and further optimisations are planned.
