Fan ProviderΒΆ


OpenLMI-Fan is CIM provider for managing hardware fans. It does so by using lm_sensors library. It exposes remotely accessible object-oriented API using WBEM set of protocols and technologies. The provider implements DMTF fan profile, for more details read DMTF profile.

The provider does not expose much functionality and as such can serve as a short example how to implement a CIM provider.


The API can be accessed by any WBEM-capable client. OpenLMI does not provide any specialized client, the best is to use LMIShell.
