1 Introduction

This is a specification of the Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) Protocol. It is based on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Protocol [C706] [MS-RPCE].

WSRM exposes a set of Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) Remote Protocol interfaces for managing processor and memory resources and accounting functions on a computer. Using these interfaces, the following operations can be performed:

  • Create, enumerate, modify, or delete rules governing resource consumption.

  • Retrieve, store, or delete long-term, persistent resource consumption histories.

  • Directly control resource management enforcement.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
