I am slowly pulling together my upcoming PowerShell Master Class. One of the modules looks at WMI objects and I’ve been searching for as many cool tools etc as I can find. Thanks to a couple of tweets (Shay and Doug!), I found a pretty cool free tool from Solarwinds, called WMI Monitor. This is a free download that does a number of things, including:
- monitors the performance on a Windows server
- leverages pre-built and community generated application templates for monitoring virtually any application
- enables you to modify or design your own application templates with the built-in WMI browser
This tool is free, but you do have to register. Also – it’s a 60mb download! But if you are doing WMI scripting with PowerShell, it might well be worth the download.
