The Solaris Volume Manager CIM/WBEM Application Programming Interface (API) provides a public, standards-based programmatic interface to observe and configure the Solaris Volume Manager. This API is based on the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) Common Information Model (CIM). For more information about DMTF, see http://www.dmtf.org.
CIM defines the data model, referred to as the “schema“ which describes the following:
attributes of and the operations against SVM devices
relationships among the various SVM devices
relationships among the SVM devices and other aspects of the operating system, such as file systems
This model is made available through the Solaris Web Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) SDK. The WBEM SDK is a set of JavaTM technology-based API's that allow access to system management capabilities that are represented by CIM.
For more information about the CIM/WBEM SDK, see the Solaris WBEM SDK Developer's Guide.
