The WMI Architecture

The WMI architecture consists of five layers:

  • A source of WMI data (e.g., a device driver) designated the data provider

  • A central repository of WMI data that implements a CIM-compliant data store, based on the CIM object model (CIMOM)

  • A WMI provider (e.g., the WDM WMI provider) that provides the necessary linkage between a WMI data source and the data store

  • A consumer (or client) of the WMI data

  • A protocol (e.g., COM) that presents the data store to a consumer
