Description

Subclasses of CIM_PhysicalElement define any component of a system that has a distinct physical identity. Instances of this class can be defined in terms of labels that can be physically attached to the object. All processes, files, and logical devices are considered not to be physical elements. For example, it is not possible to attach a label to a modem. It is only possible to attach a label to the card that implements the modem. The same card could also implement a LAN adapter. These are tangible managed system elements (usually actual hardware items) that have a physical manifestation of some sort. A managed system element is not necessarily a discrete component. For example, it is possible for a single card (which is a type of physical element) to host more than one logical device. The card would be represented by a single physical element associated with multiple logical devices.

Detailed description of CIM_PhysicalElement properties

Local properties (10) of CIM_PhysicalElement class

CreationClassName property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'CreationClassName indicates the name of the class or the subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with the other key properties of this class, this property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.'
CreationClassName property is in 175 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 20 namespaces
Manufacturer property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The name of the organization responsible for producing the physical element. This may be the entity from whom the element is purchased, but this is not necessarily true. The latter information is contained in the Vendor property of CIM_Product.'
Manufacturer property is in 54 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 17 namespaces
Model property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The name by which the physical element is generally known.'
Model property is in 24 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 11 namespaces
OtherIdentifyingInfo property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'OtherIdentifyingInfo captures additional data, beyond asset tag information, that could be used to identify a physical element. One example is bar code data associated with an element that also has an asset tag. Note that if only bar code data is available and is unique/able to be used as an element key, this property would be NULL and the bar code data used as the class key, in the tag property.'
OtherIdentifyingInfo property is in 21 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 20 namespaces
PartNumber property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The part number assigned by the organization responsible for producing or manufacturing the physical element.'
PartNumber property is in 21 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 9 namespaces
PoweredOn property
CIMTYPE'boolean'
Description'Boolean indicating that the physical element is powered on (TRUE), or is currently off (FALSE).'
PoweredOn property is in 21 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 2 namespaces
SerialNumber property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'A manufacturer-allocated number used to identify the PhysicalElement.'
SerialNumber property is in 30 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 24 namespaces
SKU property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The stock keeping unit number for this physical element.'
SKU property is in 21 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 6 namespaces
Tag property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'An arbitrary string that uniquely identifies the physicalelement and serves as the element's key. The Tag property can contain information such as asset tag or serial number data. The key for CIM_PhysicalElement is placed very high in the object hierarchy in order to independently identify the hardware/entity, regardless of physical placement in or on cabinets, adapters, etc. For example, a removable component that can be hot swapped, may be taken from its containing (scoping) package and be temporarily unused. The object still continues to exist - and may even be inserted into a different scoping container. Therefore, the key for physicalelement is an arbitrary string and is defined independently of any placement or location-oriented hierarchy.'
Tag property is in 21 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 10 namespaces
Version property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'A string indicating the version of the physical element.'
Version property is in 96 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 142 namespaces

Derived properties (5) of CIM_PhysicalElement class

Caption property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The Caption property is a short textual description (one-line string) of the object.'
Caption property is in 273 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 37 namespaces
Description property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The Description property provides a textual description of the object. '
Description property is in 329 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 142 namespaces
InstallDate property
CIMTYPE'datetime'
Description'The InstallDate property is datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.'
InstallDate property is in 223 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 23 namespaces
Name property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The Name property defines the label by which the object is known. When subclassed, the Name property can be overridden to be a Key property.'
Name property is in 306 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 142 namespaces
Status property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'The Status property is a string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses are "OK", "Degraded" and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future. An example is a SMART-enabled hard drive. Non-operational statuses can also be specified. These are "Error", "Starting", "Stopping" and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.'
Values['OK', 'Error', 'Degraded', 'Unknown', 'Pred Fail', 'Starting', 'Stopping', 'Service', 'Stressed', 'NonRecover', 'No Contact', 'Lost Comm']
Status property is in 225 classes of ROOT\CIMV2\ms_409 and in 42 namespaces
