Using the System.Management Namespace

  • Alexander Golomshtok


Driven by the desire to make the bulk of WMI system management functions easily accessible to .NET developers, the designers of the System. Management namespace built quite a few powerful types that expose all but the most obscure aspects of WMI functionality. Housing more than 40 different classes, this name-space may look complex or even intimidating to a beginner or a casual observer. This seeming complexity, however, is just an illusion; in fact, most of the System.Management types are remarkably easy to use thanks to a well-defined structure and a well-thought-out design. I’m sure that once you spend some time programming .NET management applications, you will quickly overcome any initial confusion and grow to appreciate the elegance and straightforwardness of the System.Management object model.
