DMI

DMI

(Desktop Management Interface) The first desktop management standard from the DMTF. Enabling PCs to be monitored from a central console, it was superseded by the DMTF's Common Information Model (see CIM).

The Management Information File (MIF)
When a query is made to a DMI-enabled device, the memory-resident DMI agent sends back data such as model ID, serial number, memory and port addresses in a management information file (MIF). It can also extract data from memory to provide a current status.

Support for SNMP
DMI can co-exist with SNMP. A single machine can serve as a proxy agent to service an entire LAN segment of DMI machines. When SNMP queries arrive, it can transfer the data from the MIF into the SNMP's MIB (management information base). See CIM, SNMP, WBEM and DMTF.
