Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a proprietary technology used to poll performance and management information from Windows-based network devices, applications, and components. When used as an alternative to SNMP, WMI can provide much of the same monitoring and management data currently available with SNMP-based polling with the addition of Windows-specific communications and security features. For more information about WMI, see Microsoft's MSDN.

Due to specific characteristics of WMI polling requests, polling a single WMI-enabled object uses approximately five times the resources required to poll the same or similar object with SNMP on the same polling frequency.
