Standard Consumer Classes
The following table lists the classes for WMI preinstalled permanent consumers. You can create instances of these classes to provide the permanent consumer class to supply the logical consumer that responds when triggered by the events specified in the filter. For example, use the ActiveScriptEventConsumer class to define the script that executes when a specified event occurs.
