A WBEM client allows issuing operations to a WBEM server, using the CIM operations over HTTP (CIM-XML) protocol defined in the DMTF standards DSP0200 and DSP0201. See http://www.dmtf.org/standards/wbem for information about WBEM. This is used for all kinds of systems management tasks that are supported by the system running the WBEM server.
The PyWBEM Client project provides the following functionality:
- WBEM client library API
The WBEM client library API supports issuing WBEM operations to a WBEM server, using the CIM-XML protocol.
- WBEM indication API
The WBEM indication API supports starting and stopping a WBEM listener thread that waits for indications (i.e. events) emitted by a WBEM server using the CIM-XML protocol. The API also supports managing subscriptions for such indications.
- WBEM server API
The WBEM server API represents a general access point for basic server functionality to a client, such as determining the Interop namespace of the server, or the advertised management profiles.
- WBEM utlity commands
