Admin: Retrieve Global Storage Parameters

The following steps describe how to retrieve the global parameters related to Intel AMT Third Party Data Storage.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_ThirdPartyDataStorageAdministrationService, where the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT Third Party Data Storage Administration Service”.

2.  Invoke AMT_ThirdPartyDataStorageAdministrationService.GetGlobalStorageAttributes to retrieve the values of the current parameters.  The various values are returned as output parameters:




Total bytes of Flash memory that can be used for 3PDS.


Total bytes of storage actually in use.


Maximum number of bytes that may be used by all partner applications.


Total bytes of partner storage actually in use.


Maximum number of bytes that may be used by non-partner applications. Partner applications can also use this space.


Maximum number of partner applications. (24)


Maximum number of active sessions. (16)


Maximum number of enterprises. (4)


Maximum number of permissions groups that may be associated with one storage block. (2)


Maximum number of application handles that can be listed in a permissions group. (8)


Maximum number of bytes that an individual non-partner application may allocate.

    $maxPartnerStorage =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxPartnerStorage")

    $totalPartnerAllocatedStorage =$outputObject.GetProperty("TotalPartnerAllocatedStorage")

    $maxNonPartnerStorage =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxNonPartnerStorage")

    $maxFpaclEntries =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxFpaclEntries")

    $maxAslEntries =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxAslEntries")

    $maxEaclEntries =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxEaclEntries")

    $maxGroupsPerBlock =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxGroupsPerBlock")

    $maxMembersPerGroup =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxMembersPerGroup")

    $maxNonPartnerTotalAllocationSize =$outputObject.GetProperty("MaxNonPartnerTotalAllocationSize")
