Thanks for your response to my question at snowcovered.  An awesome addition would be the ability to include multiple WMI querries in addtion to the ones you have already.

Here are some examples.
SELECT __PATH, Name, Path, Description
FROM Win32_Share

SELECT  __PATH, Name, Description
FROM Win32_Group

SELECT __PATH, BuildNumber, Organization, SerialNumber, InstallDate
FROM Win32_OperatingSystem

SELECT __PATH, Caption, ExecutablePath, CreationDate, KernelModeTime, UserModeTime, ProcessId,  ParentProcessId, Priority, ThreadCount, WorkingSetSize
FROM Win32_Process

2 Examples of using WMI to read the registry values.
[root\default:StdRegProv].GetStringValue (hDefKey=2147483650,sSubKeyName=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\IE Setup\Setup,sValueName=@ValueName )

[root\default:StdRegProv].GetStringValue(hDefKey=2147483650,sSubKeyName=SOFTWARE\Microsoft\IE Setup\Setup,sValueName=OldIEVersion)

One of the most notable projects, of which I have the latest C# source code for. is the HTTPCompMGR which is an ASP.NET application that uses XML "panels" for storing the WMI Querries and a XML style sheets are combined to display it.

Combining WMI to read the registry and normal WMI queries would be very powerful and with the ease of adding specific queries and displaying them within DNN would be a system administrators dream.

Other popular projects:
VB script writes to XML, DOC, HTML.
Great features but PHP and MySQL

I hope you will consider this as it would be a great tool for DNN and us server administrators that are constantly looking for tools to help improve our server documentation, and usage.  If you would like a copy of the source code for HTTPCompMGR please let me know and I can email it to you.

Thanks again.

Sorry, for those that would like to see screenshots of the HTTPCompMGR:

I just got email confirmation this morning from Maxim Kazitov, the generous person responsible for HTTPCompMgr, and he has given the DNN community permission to use his source code no strings attached.  The original code has no copyright info in it but I thought I would check with him just to be fair.

Max.  I was wanting to know if "we" the DotNetNuke community could use your source code to help in developing a DotNetNuke module for system management?
Thanks for your great app.

Just letting you know, I'm working on this at the moment (actually, it's mostly done - I'm at the testing stage now).  The functionality to add custom WMI queries has been added to the system info and system monitor modules, and I'll be adding the ability to do a simple "warning" condition in the system monitor module (so you can test thresholds, etc).  Email if you would like a beta version.

We've released a new version of the System Monitoring Kit for DNN 3 (and DNN 4) today.  Version 3.1.0 includes support for custom queries in the System Info and System Monitor modules, as well as enhancements to improve reliability.  You can get it from or by using the DNNUpdate service.
