Get the Heuristic Statistics (Including Current State)


Heuristic settings are NOT supported by wireless interfaces.  Therefore, this feature is not available on LAN-less platforms.

This feature was deprecated in Release 10.0 and removed in Release 12.0.

The following steps describe how to get the Heuristic System Defense statistics of an Intel AMT system.

1.  Create a reference to the instance of CIM_EthernetPort, where the “DeviceID” key equals “Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0”.

2.  Use the created reference as a selector to enumerate CIM_ElementStatisticalData.

3.  Examine the list returned by the Enumerate method and search for instances where the value of the Stats property is AMT_HeuristicPacketFilterStatistics.

Perform the following steps for each of the instances you find.

4.  Invoke AMT_HeuristicPacketFilterStatistics.Get using the EPR stored in the Stats property of CIM_ElementStatisticalData.

You can execute this snippet by inserting it into the execution template found here.


# Create a reference to the CIM_EthernetPort instance.

$ethernetPortRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("SELECT * FROM CIM_EthernetPort WHERE DeviceID='Intel(r) AMT Ethernet Port 0'")

$elementStatisticalDataRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("CIM_ElementStatisticalData")


# Traverse to the CIM_ElementStatisticalData instances that are connected to the CIM_EthernetPort instance.

foreach($elementStatisticalDataItem in$elementStatisticalDataRef.Enumerate("",$null))


    # For each instance, check if it is associated to the AMT_HeuristicsPacketFilterStatiistics instance.



          # Get the AMT_HeuristicPacketFilterStatistics object using its EPR.

          $heuristicPacketFilterStatisticsRef =$elementStatisticalDataItem.Object.GetProperty("Stats").Ref

          $heuristicPacketFilterStatisticsInstance =$heuristicPacketFilterStatisticsRef.Get()
