GetSummaryInformation method of the Msvm_VirtualSystemManagementService class

Returns summary information for VMs and VM snapshots.


uint32 GetSummaryInformation(
  [in]  CIM_VirtualSystemSettingData REF SettingData[],
  [in]  uint32                           RequestedInformation[],
  [out] Msvm_SummaryInformationBase      SummaryInformation[]


SettingData [in]

An array that contains references to CIM_VirtualSystemSettingData instances that specify setting data for the VMs and VM snapshots. If this parameter is NULL, information for all VMs is retrieved.

RequestedInformation [in]

An array that indicates the settings to retrieve in the SettingData array. Values in the 0-99 range apply to both VMs and snapshots. Values in the 100-199 range apply to VMs only, and will be ignored for elements of SettingData that represent snapshots. Values in the 200-299 range apply to snapshots only, and will be ignored for elements of SettingData that represent virtual machines.
