*Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) 

As the product name suggests, the WMImonitor agent heavily utilises Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) which is the Microsoft implementation of Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM). This is an industry initiative to develop a standard technology for accessing management information in an enterprise environment. WMI uses the Common Information Model (CIM) industry standard to represent systems, applications, networks, devices, and other managed components. The integration and use of WMI ensures fast and efficient, non-intrusive data collection techniques that do not burden local or network resources.
