How to test / troubleshoot WMI
Posted on 2010-11-23
My monitoring program (Whats Up Gold) uses WMI to get information about disk space and other settings. I am getting errors where WUG is reporting disk space is below the alerting threshold -- and immediately after I receive another alert that the disk space is OK again. I know that the disk space is not changing that drastically in just a minute or two.
I was told that the problem is probably related to WMI malfunctioning, however, I have no idea how to test or evaluate if it's functioning properly or how to remediate if it's not. I do know that it's a Windows component.
Looking for some advice on what to do to troubleshoot WMI.
