Detailed description of CIM_Sensor methods

Derived methods (8) of CIM_Sensor class

EnableDevice method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Parameters
NameCIMTypeIDINOUTQualifiers
Enabledboolean0-
Description'The EnableDevice method has been deprecated in lieu of the more general RequestStateChange method that directly overlaps with the functionality provided by this method.
Requests that the LogicalDevice be enabled ("Enabled" input parameter = TRUE) or disabled (= FALSE). If successful, the Device's StatusInfo/EnabledState properties should reflect the desired state (enabled/disabled). Note that this method's function overlaps with the RequestedState property. RequestedState was added to the model to maintain a record (i.e., a persisted value) of the last state request. Invoking the EnableDevice method should set the RequestedState property appropriately.
The return code should be 0 if the request was successfully executed, 1 if the request is not supported and some other value if an error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.'
EnableDevice method is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 10 namespaces
OnlineDevice method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Parameters
NameCIMTypeIDINOUTQualifiers
Onlineboolean0-
Description'The OnlineDevice method has been deprecated in lieu of the more general RequestStateChange method that directly overlaps with the functionality provided by this method.
Requests that the LogicalDevice be brought online ("Online" input parameter = TRUE) or taken offline (= FALSE). "Online" indicates that the Device is ready to accept requests, and is operational and fully functioning. In this case, the Device's Availability property would be set to a value of 3 ("Running/Full Power"). "Offline" indicates that a Device is powered up and operational, but not processing functional requests. In an offline state, a Device may be capable of running diagnostics or generating operational alerts. For example, when the "Offline" button is pushed on a Printer, the Device is no longer available to process print jobs, but could be available for diagnostics or maintenance.
If this method is successful, the Device's Availability and AdditionalAvailability properties should reflect the updated status. If a failure occurs trying to bring the Device online or offline, it should remain in its current state. IE, the request, if unsuccessful, should not leave the Device in an indeterminate state. When bringing a Device back "Online", from an "Offline" mode, the Device should be restored to its last "Online" state, if at all possible. Only a Device that has an EnabledState/StatusInfo of "Enabled" and has been configured can be brought online or taken offline.
OnlineDevice should return 0 if successful, 1 if the request is not supported at all, 2 if the request is not supported due to the current state of the Device, and some other value if any other error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.
Note that this method's function overlaps with the RequestedState property. RequestedState was added to the model to maintain a record (i.e., a persisted value) of the last state request. Invoking the OnlineDevice method should set the RequestedState property appropriately.'
OnlineDevice method is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 8 namespaces
QuiesceDevice method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Parameters
NameCIMTypeIDINOUTQualifiers
Quiesceboolean0-
Description'The QuiesceDevice method has been deprecated in lieu of the more general RequestStateChange method that directly overlaps with the functionality provided by this method.
Requests that the LogicalDevice cleanly cease all current activity ("Quiesce" input parameter = TRUE) or resume activity (= FALSE). For this method to quiesce a Device, that Device should have an Availability (or Additional Availability) of "Running/Full Power" (value=3) and an EnabledStatus/StatusInfo of "Enabled". For example, if quiesced, a Device may then be offlined for diagnostics, or disabled for power off and hot swap. For the method to "unquiesce" a Device, that Device should have an Availability (or AdditionalAvailability) of "Quiesced" (value=21) and an EnabledStatus/StatusInfo of "Enabled". In this case, the Device would be returned to an "Enabled" and "Running/Full Power" status.
The method's return code should indicate the success or failure of the quiesce. It should return 0 if successful, 1 if the request is not supported at all, 2 if the request is not supported due to the current state of the Device, and some other value if any other error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.'

Jobref:CIM_ConcreteJob1-
TimeoutPerioddatetime2-
Description'Requests that the element's state be changed to the value specified in the RequestedState parameter. When the requested state change takes place, the element's EnabledState and RequestedState will be the same. Invoking the RequestStateChange method multiple times could result in earlier requests being overwritten/lost.
If 0 is returned, then the task completed successfully and the use of ConcreteJob was not required. If 4096 (0x1000) is returned, then the task will take some time to complete, ConcreteJob will be created, and its reference returned in the output parameter Job. Any other return code indicates an error condition.'

RequestStateChange method is in 14 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 15 namespaces
Reset method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Description'Requests a reset of the LogicalDevice. The return value should be 0 if the request was successfully executed, 1 if the request is not supported and some other value if an error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.'
Reset method is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 19 namespaces
RestoreProperties method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Description'Requests that the Device re-establish its configuration, setup and/or state information from a backing store. This is handled more generally by the ConfigurationData subclass of SettingData. Therefore, this method is deprecated.

The information would have been captured at an earlier time (via the SaveProperties method). This method may not be supported by all Devices. The method should return 0 if successful, 1 if the request is not supported, and some other value if any other error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.'
RestoreProperties method is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 8 namespaces
SaveProperties method
Returnuint32 {'out':True}
Description'Requests that the Device capture its current configuration, setup and/or state information in a backing store. This is handled more generally by the ConfigurationData subclass of SettingData. Therefore, this method is deprecated.

The information returned by this method could be used at a later time (via the RestoreProperties method), to return a Device to its present "condition". This method may not be supported by all Devices. The method should return 0 if successful, 1 if the request is not supported, and some other value if any other error occurred. In a subclass, the set of possible return codes could be specified, using a ValueMap qualifier on the method. The strings to which the ValueMap contents are 'translated' may also be specified in the subclass as a Values array qualifier.'

PossibleStates property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'PossibleStates enumerates the string outputs of the Sensor. For example, a "Switch" Sensor may output the states "On", or "Off". Another implementation of the Switch may output the states "Open", and "Close". Another example is a NumericSensor supporting thresholds. This Sensor can report the states like "Normal", "Upper Fatal", "Lower Non-Critical", etc. A NumericSensor that does not publish readings and thresholds, but stores this data internally, can still report its states.'
MaxLen128
PossibleStates property is in 4 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 4 namespaces
SensorType property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'The Type of the Sensor, e.g. Voltage or Temperature Sensor. If the type is set to "Other", then the OtherSensorType Description can be used to further identify the type, or if the Sensor has numeric readings, then the type of the Sensor can be implicitly determined by the Units. A description of the different Sensor types is as follows: A Temperature Sensor measures the environmental temperature. Voltage and Current Sensors measure electrical voltage and current readings. A Tachometer measures speed/revolutions of a Device. For example, a Fan Device can have an associated Tachometer which measures its speed. A Counter is a general purpose Sensor that measures some numerical property of a Device. A Counter value can be cleared, but it never decreases. A Switch Sensor has states like Open/Close, On/Off, or Up/Down. A Lock has states of Locked/Unlocked. Humidity, Smoke Detection and Air Flow Sensors measure the equivalent environmental characteristics. A Presence Sensor detects the presence of a PhysicalElement.'

AdditionalAvailability property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'Additional availability and status of the Device, beyond that specified in the Availability property. The Availability property denotes the primary status and availability of the Device. In some cases, this will not be sufficient to denote the complete status of the Device. In those cases, the AdditionalAvailability property can be used to provide further information. For example, a Device's primary Availability may be "Off line" (value=8), but it may also be in a low power state (AdditonalAvailability value=14), or the Device could be running Diagnostics (AdditionalAvailability value=5, "In Test").'

Availability property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'The primary availability and status of the Device. (Additional status information can be specified using the Additional Availability array property.) For example, the Availability property indicates that the Device is running and has full power (value=3), or is in a warning (4), test (5), degraded (10) or power save state (values 13-15 and 17). Regarding the Power Save states, these are defined as follows: Value 13 ("Power Save - Unknown") indicates that the Device is known to be in a power save mode, but its exact status in this mode is unknown; 14 ("Power Save - Low Power Mode") indicates that the Device is in a power save state but still functioning, and may exhibit degraded performance; 15 ("Power Save - Standby") describes that the Device is not functioning but could be brought to full power 'quickly'; and value 17 ("Power Save - Warning") indicates that the Device is in a warning state, though also in a power save mode.'

ElementName property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'A user-friendly name for the object. This property allows each instance to define a user-friendly name IN ADDITION TO its key properties/identity data, and description information.
Note that ManagedSystemElement's Name property is also defined as a user-friendly name. But, it is often subclassed to be a Key. It is not reasonable that the same property can convey both identity and a user friendly name, without inconsistencies. Where Name exists and is not a Key (such as for instances of LogicalDevice), the same information MAY be present in both the Name and ElementName properties.'
ElementName property is in 33 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 21 namespaces

writeTrue
EnabledDefault property is in 14 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 10 namespaces
EnabledState property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'EnabledState is an integer enumeration that indicates the enabled/disabled states of an element. It can also indicate the transitions between these requested states. For example, shutting down (value = 4) and starting (value=10) are transient states between enabled and disabled. The following text briefly summarizes the various enabled/disabled states:
Enabled (2) indicates that the element is/could be executing commands, will process any queued commands, and queues new requests.
Disabled (3) indicates that the element will not execute commands and will drop any new requests.
Shutting Down (4) indicates that the element is in the process of going to a Disabled state.
Not Applicable (5) indicates the element doesn't support being enabled/disabled.
Enabled but Offline (6) indicates that the element may be completing commands, and will drop any new requests.
Test (7) indicates that the element is in a test state.
Deferred (8) indicates that the element may be completing commands, but will queue any new requests.
Quiesce (9) indicates that the element is enabled but in a restricted mode. The element's behavior is similar to the Enabled state, but it only processes a restricted set of commands. All other requests are queued.
Starting (10) indicates that the element is in the process of going to an Enabled state. New requests are queued.'

CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'Indicates the current health of the element. This attribute expresses the health of this element but not necessarily that of its subcomponents. The possible values are 0 to 30, where 5 means the element is entirely healthy and 30 means the element is completely non-functional. The following continuum is defined:
"Non-recoverable Error" (30) - The element has completed failed and recovery is not possible. All functionality provided by this element has been lost.
"Critical Failure" (25) - The element is non-functional and recovery MAY NOT be possible.
"Major Failure" (20) - The element is failing. It is possible the some or all of the functionality of this component is degraded or not working.
"Minor Failure" (15) - All functionality is available but some MAY be degraded.
"Degraded/Warning" (10) - The element is in working order and all functionality is provided. However, the element is not working to the best of its abilities. For example, the element may not be operating at optimal performance or it may be reporting recoverable errors.
"OK" (5) - The element is fully functional and is operating within normal operational parameters and without error.
"Unknown" (0) - The implementation can not report on HealthState at this time.
DMTF has reserved the unused portion of the continuum for additional HealthStates in the future.'

LastErrorCode property
CIMTYPE'uint32'
Description'LastErrorCode captures the last error code reported by the LogicalDevice.'
LastErrorCode property is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 16 namespaces
MaxQuiesceTime property
CIMTYPE'uint64'
Description'The MaxQuiesceTime property has been deprecated. When evaluating the use of Quiesce, it was determine that this single property is not adequate for describing when a device will automatically exit a quiescent state. In fact, the most likely scenario for a device to exit a quiescent state was determined to be based on the number of outstanding requests queued rather than on a maximum time. This will be re-evaluated and repositioned later.
Maximum time in milliseconds, that a Device can run in a "Quiesced" state. A Device's state is defined in its Availability and AdditionalAvailability properties, where "Quiesced" is conveyed by the value 21. What occurs at the end of the time limit is device-specific. The Device may unquiesce, may offline or take other action. A value of 0 indicates that a Device can remain quiesced indefinitely.'
MaxQuiesceTime property is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 8 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 26 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 142 namespaces
OperationalStatus property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'Indicates the current status(es) of the element. Various operational statuses are defined. Many of the enumeration's values are self- explanatory. However, a few are not and are described in more detail.
"Stressed" indicates that the element is functioning, but needs attention. Examples of "Stressed" states are overload, overheated, etc.
"Predictive Failure" indicates that an element is functioning nominally but predicting a failure in the near future.
"In Service" describes an element being configured, maintained, cleaned, or otherwise administered.
"No Contact" indicates that the monitoring system has knowledge of this element, but has never been able to establish communications with it.
"Lost Communication" indicates that the ManagedSystem Element is known to exist and has been contacted successfully in the past, but is currently unreachable.
"Stopped" and "Aborted" are similar, although the former implies a clean and orderly stop, while the latter implies an abrupt stop where the element's state and configuration may need to be updated.
"Dormant" indicates that the element is inactive or quiesced.
"Supporting Entity in Error" describes that this element may be "OK" but that another element, on which it is dependent, is in error. An example is a network service or endpoint that cannot function due to lower layer networking problems.
"Completed" indicates the element has completed its operation. This value should be combined with either OK, Error, or Degraded so that a client can till if the complete operation passed (Completed with OK), and failure (Completed with Error). Completed with Degraded would imply the operation finished, but did not complete OK or report an error.
"Power Mode" indicates the element has additional power model information contained in the Associated PowerManagementService association.
OperationalStatus replaces the Status property on ManagedSystemElement to provide a consistent approach to enumerations, to address implementation needs for an array property, and to provide a migration path from today's environment to the future. This change was not made earlier since it required the DEPRECATED qualifier. Due to the widespread use of the existing Status property in management applications, it is strongly RECOMMENDED that providers/instrumentation provide BOTH the Status and OperationalStatus properties. Further, the first value of OperationalStatus SHOULD contain the primary status for the element. When instrumented, Status (since it is single-valued) SHOULD also provide the primary status of the element.'
Values['Unknown', 'Other', 'OK', 'Degraded', 'Stressed', 'Predictive Failure', 'Error', 'Non-Recoverable Error', 'Starting', 'Stopping', 'Stopped', 'In Service', 'No Contact', 'Lost Communication', 'Aborted', 'Dormant', 'Supporting Entity in Error', 'Completed', 'Power Mode', 'DMTF Reserved', 'Vendor Reserved']
OperationalStatus property is in 18 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 18 namespaces
OtherEnabledState property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'A string describing the element's enabled/disabled state when the EnabledState property is set to 1 ("Other"). This property MUST be set to NULL when EnabledState is any value other than 1.'
OtherEnabledState property is in 14 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 11 namespaces
OtherIdentifyingInfo property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'OtherIdentifyingInfo captures additional data, beyond DeviceID information, that could be used to identify a LogicalDevice. One example would be to hold the Operating System's user friendly name for the Device in this property.'
OtherIdentifyingInfo property is in 7 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 20 namespaces
PowerManagementCapabilities property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'An enumerated array describing the power management capabilities of the Device. The use of this property has been deprecated. Instead, the PowerCapabilites property in an associated PowerManagementCapabilities class should be used.'
Values['Unknown', 'Not Supported', 'Disabled', 'Enabled', 'Power Saving Modes Entered Automatically', 'Power State Settable', 'Power Cycling Supported', 'Timed Power On Supported']
PowerManagementCapabilities property is in 7 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 14 namespaces
PowerManagementSupported property
CIMTYPE'boolean'
Description'Boolean indicating that the Device can be power managed. The use of this property has been deprecated. Instead, the existence of an associated PowerManagementCapabilities class (associated using the ElementCapabilities relationhip) indicates that power management is supported.'
PowerManagementSupported property is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 14 namespaces
PowerOnHours property
CIMTYPE'uint64'
Description'The number of consecutive hours that this Device has been powered, since its last power cycle.'
PowerOnHours property is in 5 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 13 namespaces
RequestedState property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'RequestedState is an integer enumeration indicating the last requested or desired state for the element. The actual state of the element is represented by EnabledState. This property is provided to compare the last requested and current enabled/disabled states. Note that when EnabledState is set to 5 ("Not Applicable"), then this property has no meaning. By default, the element's RequestedState is 5 ("No Change"). Refer to the EnabledState's property Description for explanations of the values in the RequestedState enumeration.

It should be noted that there are two new values in RequestedState that build on the statuses of EnabledState. These are "Reboot" (10) and "Reset" (11). The former, Reboot, refers to doing a "Shut Down" and then moving to an "Enabled" state. The latter, Reset, indicates that the element is first "Disabled" and then "Enabled". The distinction between requesting "Shut Down" and "Disabled" should also be noted. The former, Shut Down, requests an orderly transition to the Disabled state, and MAY involve removing power, to completely erase any existing state. The latter, the Disabled state, requests an immediate disabling of the element, such that it will not execute or accept any commands or processing requests.

This property is set as the result of a method invocation (such as Start or StopService on CIM_Service), or may be overridden and defined as WRITEable in a subclass. The method approach is considered superior to a WRITEable property, since it allows an explicit invocation of the operation and the return of a result code.

It is possible that a particular instance of EnabledLogicalElement may not support RequestedStateChange. If this occurs, the value 12 ("Not Applicable") is used.'
Values['Enabled', 'Disabled', 'Shut Down', 'No Change', 'Offline', 'Test', 'Deferred', 'Quiesce', 'Reboot', 'Reset', 'Not Applicable', 'DMTF Reserved', 'Vendor Reserved']
RequestedState property is in 14 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 12 namespaces
Status property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'A string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses are defined. This property is deprecated in lieu of OperationalStatus, which includes the same semantics in its enumeration. This change is made for 3 reasons: 1) Status is more correctly defined as an array. This overcomes the limitation of describing status via a single value, when it is really a multi-valued property (for example, an element may be OK AND Stopped. 2) A MaxLen of 10 is too restrictive and leads to unclear enumerated values. And, 3) The change to a uint16 data type was discussed when CIM V2.0 was defined. However, existing V1.0 implementations used the string property and did not want to modify their code. Therefore, Status was grandfathered into the Schema. Use of the Deprecated qualifier allows the maintenance of the existing property, but also permits an improved definition using OperationalStatus.'
Status property is in 18 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 42 namespaces
StatusDescriptions property
CIMTYPE'string'
Description'Strings describing the various OperationalStatus array values. For example, if "Stopping" is the value assigned to OperationalStatus, then this property may contain an explanation as to why an object is being stopped. Note that entries in this array are correlated with those at the same array index in OperationalStatus.'
StatusDescriptions property is in 18 classes of ROOT\Hardware and in 18 namespaces
StatusInfo property
CIMTYPE'uint16'
Description'The StatusInfo property indicates whether the Logical Device is in an enabled (value = 3), disabled (value = 4) or some other (1) or unknown (2) state. If this property does not apply to the LogicalDevice, the value, 5 ("Not Applicable"), should be used. StatusInfo has been deprecated in lieu of a more clearly named property with additional enumerated values (EnabledState), that is inherited from ManagedSystemElement.
If a Device is ("Enabled")(value=3), it has been powered up, and is configured and operational. The Device may or may not be functionally active, depending on whether its Availability (or AdditionalAvailability) indicate that it is ("Running/Full Power")(value=3) or ("Off line") (value=8). In an enabled but offline mode, a Device may be performing out-of-band requests, such as running Diagnostics. If ("Disabled") StatusInfo value=4), a Device can only be "enabled" or powered off. In a personal computer environment, ("Disabled") means that the Device's driver is not available in the stack. In other environments, a Device can be disabled by removing its configuration file. A disabled device is physically present in a System and consuming resources, but can not be communicated with until a load of a driver, a load of a configuration file or some other "enabling" activity has occurred.'
