CIM for Intel RSTe

What is CIM for Intel RSTe?

The Common Information Model (CIM) is an open standard that defines
how managed elements in an IT environment are represented
as a common set of objects (schema) and relationships between them.
This is intended to allow consistent management of these managed elements,
independent of their manufacturer or provider. The CIM standard is defined and published by the Distributed
Management Task Force (DMTF).


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named RSTWmiService.exe. The setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 7.84 MB (8,218,039 bytes).
