ElementName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

A display name for the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement, and it is always set to "Hyper-V Metric Service".

EnabledDefault

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

An administrator's default or startup configuration for the enabled state of an element. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement, and it is always set to 2 (Enabled).

EnabledState

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

The enabled and disabled states of an element. This property can also indicate the transitions between these requested states. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement, and it is always set to 2 (Enabled).

HealthState

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

The current health of the element. This attribute expresses the health of this element but not necessarily that of its subcomponents. The possible values are 0 to 30, where 5 means the element is entirely healthy and 30 means the element is completely nonfunctional. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement, and it is always set to 5 (OK).

InstallDate

Data type: datetime

Access type: Read-only

The date and time the virtual machine configuration was created. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

InstanceID

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Qualifiers: Key

Uniquely identifies an instance of this class. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedElement, and it is always set to Null.

Name

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

The label by which the object is known. This property is inherited from CIM_Service, and it is always set to "metricsvc".

OperatingStatus

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

Provides current status information for the operational condition of the element and can be used for providing more detail with respect to the value of the EnabledState property. A Null value indicates that this property is not implemented. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

OperationalStatus

Data type: uint16 array

Access type: Read-only

The current statuses of the object. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement, and each array element is always set to 2 (OK).

OtherEnabledState

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

A string that describes the enabled or disabled state of the element when the EnabledState property is set to 1 (Other). This property must be set to Null when EnabledState is any value other than 1. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement, and it is always set to Null.

PrimaryOwnerContact

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

A value that provides information about how the primary owner of the service can be reached (for example, phone number, email address, and so on). This property is inherited from CIM_Service, and it is always set to Null.

PrimaryOwnerName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

The name of the primary owner for the service, if one is defined. The primary owner is the initial support contact for the service. This property is inherited from CIM_Service, and it is always set to Null.

PrimaryStatus

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

Provides high level status information. This property should be used in conjunction with the DetailedStatus property to provide high level and detailed health status of the element and its subcomponents. A Null value indicates that this property is not implemented. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement.

Unknown (0)

RequestedState

Data type: uint16

Access type: Read-only

The last requested or desired state for the element. The actual state of the element is represented by EnabledState. This property is provided to compare the last requested and current enabled or disabled states. A particular instance of CIM_EnabledLogicalElement might not support the RequestStateChange method. If this occurs, the value 12 (Not Applicable) is used. This property is inherited from CIM_EnabledLogicalElement, and it is always set to 12 (Not Applicable).

Started

Data type: boolean

Access type: Read-only

Indicates whether the service is currently running. This property is inherited from CIM_Service.

StartMode

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

Status

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement, and it is always set to "OK".

StatusDescriptions

Data type: string array

Access type: Read-only

Strings that describe the various OperationalStatus array values. This property is inherited from CIM_ManagedSystemElement, and the strings are always set to "OK".

SystemCreationClassName

Data type: string

Access type: Read-only

The scoping system's creation class name. This property is inherited from CIM_Service, and it is always set to "Msvm_ComputerSystem".

SystemName
