關於 CIM Explorer

掌握了 CIM 類及其屬性和方法。

CIM Explorer is a tool for exploring the Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation database. The CIM database represents an extensive repository of information about your servers and client machines, which, as a system or network administrator, you need to utilize every day. Use CIM Explorer’s Windows PowerShell code generating abilities to create code for queries or even a GUI app with just a few clicks. The integrated PowerShell console for Windows PowerShell and PowerShell Core makes testing generated PowerShell statements instant and easy.

CIM Explorer Features

  • Browse remote machines - Connect to any machine in your network and browse, search or query its CIM database. All namespaces, classes, properties and methods are cached locally so you can browse even when you are not connected.
  • Access all CIM information - You have full access to all the help and documentation that the CIM provider stores in the database.
  • Search everything - A large number of options enables you to search any particular class or namespace as well as the entire database. Limit the search to the elements you need, or search everything.
  • Filter out the noise - Advanced filter options allow you to limit the classes you see, making browsing and scanning for the desired objects much easier. Custom filters can adapt the current view to your needs at any moment.
  • Query data - Browsing properties and methods of a class is not always enough. The underlying data can be just as important. The multi-threaded query functions allow you to query by class, specific properties or with custom WQL expressions. Getting the PowerShell code for your query is just a click away.
  • Export results - CIM queries can yield a large amount of data that needs to be processed in other applications or tools. CIM Explorer 2020 provides you with four common file formats to export your query results: HTML, XML, CSV and plain text.
  • Generate code - For each class or property, you automatically get the correct code to query your selection in PowerShell or VBScript. CIM Method calls are shown with PowerShell sample code specifying parameters in their correct order. All that information is displayed alongside the documentation for the object.
