This document lists CIM monitoring plug-ins, also referred to as CIM providers, developed and released by server, storage, and I/O device vendors for monitoring their hardware on VMware vSphere systems. For support and availability information of any desired providers, please refer to the vendor directly.

The CIM providers listed below passed VMware's CIM Provider Acceptance Test (CIM PAT), which allows these vendors to provide a measure of reliability and stability of their code. All the tests contained in CIMPAT are meant to exercise and provide coverage of the provider's intrinsic methods. Testing consists of running tools that verify that the behavior of a CIM provider does not introduce undesirable effects on the operation of the system as a whole.

This document lists CIM providers starting with vSphere 5.0.

Any technical issues found with the vendor provided CIM providers are handled by the corresponding vendor as described in the 3rd party support documentation at http://www.vmware.com/support/policies/ThirdParty.html. See also the links to vendor support websites.
