How does the HardwareAssetService gather hardware information?

How does the HardwareAssetService gather hardware information?

How does the HardwareAssetService gather information about the hardware on a system? Does the AMT probe and decode memory in the SMBIOS (DMI) ?

I'm doing a comparison of verbosity, and how accurate the information is compared to the tool dmidecode.

Thanks for your comments and help!

Yes, the CIM calls all access the SMBIO tables. Not sure this really answers your question.For example: Class CIM_PhysicalMemoryManufacturer

public string Manufacturer

General Information:
The name of the organization responsible for producing the PhysicalElement. This organization might be the entity from whom the Element is purchased, but this is not necessarily true. The latter information is contained in the Vendor property of CIM_Product.

Product Specific Usage:
"Manufacturer" string in the SMBIOS Memory Device (type 17) structure.

Qualifiers:
-------------
MaxLen=65
MappingStrings={MIB.IETF|Entity-MIB.entPhysicalMfgName, MIF.DMTF|FRU|003.4}
