CIM Elements

The following table describes the CIM elements used to implement the Event Manager feature.

Element Name

Description

Instance Creation**

Cardinality

Classes

AMT_EventManagerService

Represents the Event Manager service in Intel AMT.

Static

1

AMT_MessageLog

Extends MessageLog with multiple record fetching.

Static

1

AMT_PETCapabilities

Describes the attributes associated with a single logical sensor which can cause event alerts. The logical model classifies sensors according to type regardless of the physical devices that implement them. Thus, a single physical sensor device can implement logical sensors of different types, such as temperature and voltage sensors.

Static

System specific

 

AMT_PETFilterSetting

Represents a PET filter in the Intel AMT system.

User (and 1 Static instance of the preconfigured filter)

 

1 – 17

AMT_SNMPEventSubscriber

Represents an SNMP-events subscriber in the Intel AMT system.

User

0 – 14

AMT_TimeSynchronizationService

Exposes Intel AMT time synchronization services to management clients.

Static

1

CIM_Sensor

A Sensor is an entity capable of measuring or reporting the characteristics of some physical property – for example, the temperature or voltage characteristics of a Computer System.

Static

System specific

 

Associations

AMT_PETFilterForTarget

Associates an event filter (AMT_PETFilterSetting) to an events subscriber (AMT_SOAPEventSubscriber or AMT_SNMPEventSubscriber).

Implicit

0 – 17

AMT_TrapTargetForService

Specifies the endpoint to which traps events are sent by the alerting service.

Implicit

0 – 14

CIM_ElementCapabilities

Associates between AMT_EventManagerService and AMT_PETCapabilities.

Static

*

CIM_ElementSettingData

Associates between the Intel AMT CIM_ComputerSystem and AMT_PETFilterSetting.

Implicit

*

CIM_HostedService

Associates between the Intel AMT CIM_ComputerSystem and AMT_EventManagerService.

Static

*

CIM_UseOfLog

ManagedSystemElements may record their event, error or informational data within Logs. The use of a Log to hold a ManagedSystemElement's data is described by this association. The type of Element data captured by the Log can be specified using the RecordedData string property.

Static

2

* Multiple instances

** Instance Creation:

     Implicit: Instances created implicitly by Intel AMT in response to a user CIM operation

     Static: Instances created by Intel AMT on initialization

     User: The class supports create/delete

 

 Note:

Using CIM_RecordLog and AMT_EventLogEntry to manage the event log is an alternative approach for recovering log entries required for Intel AMT Release 3.0, as this is the only WS-Management mechanism available for that release. Starting with Intel AMT Release 3.2, this approach and the classes CIM_RecordLog and AMT_EventLogEntry and the association class CIM_LogManagesRecord are deprecated in favor of using AMT_MessageLog.

The AMT_EventLogEntry class was deleted in Release 6.0 and reinstated in Release 6.1. The feature supports a reduced number of log entries compared to the earlier implementation (50 records vs. 400 previously). The feature is still deprecated and may be removed in a future release.

The following diagram illustrates the CIM elements used in the Event Manager feature.
