ESX includes a CIM Object Manager (CIMOM) that implements a set of server discovery and monitoring features. With the VMware CIM SMASH/Server Management API, clients that use industry-standard protocols can do the following:
• Enumerate system resources
• Monitor system health data
The plugin is general enough to support other CIM compliant services and is not limited only to ESX. The goal of this plugin was to expose ESX CIMOM in the vCenter Orchestrator.
