Detailed description of CIM_LogicalElement properties

Derived properties (9) of CIM_LogicalElement class

Caption property
Description'The Caption property is a short textual description (one- line string) of the object.'
Caption property is in 33 classes of ROOT\Hardware\ms_409 and in 37 namespaces
Description property
Description'The Description property provides a textual description of the object.'
Description property is in 34 classes of ROOT\Hardware\ms_409 and in 142 namespaces
ElementName property
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\ms_409 and in 21 namespaces
HealthState property
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.'
Values['Unknown', 'OK', 'Degraded/Warning', 'Minor failure', 'Major failure', 'Critical failure', 'Non-recoverable error', 'DMTF Reserved']
HealthState property is in 18 classes of ROOT\Hardware\ms_409 and in 15 namespaces
InstallDate property
Description'A 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 18 classes of ROOT\Hardware\ms_409 and in 23 namespaces
Name property
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\ms_409 and in 142 namespaces
OperationalStatus property
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\ms_409 and in 18 namespaces
Status property
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\ms_409 and in 42 namespaces
StatusDescriptions property
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\ms_409 and in 18 namespaces
