-
-<p>The overall level of functionality in the Pegasus environment effective with
-this release is as follows:</p>
-
-<h3><b>CIM Server Functionality</b></h3>
-
-<p>The following paragraphs list the functions in this release.&nbsp; All
-functions are considered community tested and operational unless specifically
-noted below. Features that are marked alpha or beta are not generally of the
-quality or completeness for production usage.&nbsp;&nbsp;Interfaces that are
-part of the Pegasus public interface definitions but that the Pegasus team feels
-may change are marked experimental. In many cases these features&nbsp; and
-interfaces are conditionally compiled with special environment variables. PEP
-174 provides more detailed information on how to enable functionality that is
-conditionally compiled in this release.</p>
-
-<blockquote>
-
-<h4><b>CIM Operations over HTTP support</b></h4>
-
- <ol>
- <li>Class Operations (<span class=SpellE>getClass</span>, <span
- class=SpellE>deleteClass</span>, <span class=SpellE>modifyClass</span>, <span
- class=SpellE>enumerateClass</span>, <span class=SpellE>enumerateClassNames</span>)</li>
- <li>Qualifier Operations (getQualifier, setQualifier, deleteQualifier) </li>
- <li>Instance Operations (<span class=SpellE>getInstance</span>, <span
- class=SpellE>deleteInstance</span>, <span class=SpellE>modifyInstance</span>,
- <span class=SpellE>enumerateInstance</span>, <span class=SpellE>enumerateInstanceNames</span>,

- <li>Association Operations (references, <span class=SpellE>referencenames</span>,
- <span class=SpellE>associators</span>, <span class=SpellE>associatornames)</span></li>
- <li>Methods Operations (invokeMethod)</li>
- <li>Query operation - Support for ExecQuery was added in 2.4 with
- WQL as query language and is defined in PEP 119. This feature is considered at
- alpha quality because it has only been contributor tested and there is no test
- in the test suite to confirm the functionality.</li>
- </ol>
- </blockquote>
</div>
-<blockquote>
-
-<h4><b>Indications</b></h4>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal>Process indications are operational in the Server.&nbsp; This includes support
-for subscriptions, filters, and indication handlers, the provider API for
-indications and the CIMXML indication handler. </p>
-
-<h4><b>Indication Listener</b></h4>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal>The generic components for a CIM
-Listener and a listener API are operational.&nbsp; This includes the functions
-for HTTP, XML indication input and response, and consumers of indications. This
-code can be used to define a separate listener package and is used as an
-indication listener in the Pegasus server.&nbsp; </p>
-
-</blockquote>
-
-<div class=Section1>
-
-<blockquote>
-
-<h4><b>Query Language</b></h4>
-
-<p>The query language today is based on WQL and is implemented and used for
-filters and in 2.4 for execQuery.&nbsp; The execQuery support&nbsp; for WQL has
-been implemented in Pegasus 2.4 but is considered alpha quality.</p>
-
-<h4><b>Class Repository</b></h4>
-
-<p>Pegasus uses an XML based file/directory class repository. All class and qualifier operations
-access this repository. The repository was modified to improve efficiency in 2.4
-by adding a binary repository option to reduce repository size. The binary
-repository functions are considered alpha level because they have only been
-contributor tested and there is no test function in the automated Pegasus test
-suite.</p>
-
-<h4><b>Instance Repository</b></h4>
-
-<p>Pegasus uses an XML based file/directory Instance repository.&nbsp; The
-instance&nbsp; repository may be conditionally used as the default repository
-with a Pegasus configuration flag ( As defined in PEP 174, it is normally set&nbsp;
-to NOT use the instance repository as default).</p>

-<h4><b>SLP Discovery</b></h4>
-
-<p>SLP support is included but is conditionally compiled with the default.&nbsp; This code can be enabled by setting the compile
-environment variable PEGASUS_ENABLE_SLP.&nbsp;&nbsp; Once compiled, SLP support
-is enabled with the slp configuration parameter (slp=true). SLP support includes
-an SLP service agent in the Pegasus CIM severas and generates SLP advertisements compatible with the DMTF
-slp template specification. The SLP support also includes&nbsp; extensions to the CIM
-Client libraries to execute SLP User Agent requests and analyze the results
-(note that these interfaces are not yet part of the Pegasus public SDK).</p>
-
-<h4>Provider Managers</h4>
-
-<p>Pegasus is designed to support multiple Provider Managers to allow multiple
-provider interfaces to the CIMOM.&nbsp; The default provider manager is the C++
-Interface.&nbsp; This section defines the additional provider managers available
-with Pegasus 2.4.</p>
-
- <blockquote>
-
-<h5><b style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>CMPI C interface Provider Manager<o:p></o:p></b></h5>
-
-<p>Pegasus 2.4 includes a provider manager for the CMPI C interfaces.<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>
-</span>This C interface is the result of a project by the IBM SBLIM team (<span
-class=GramE>see<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'>  </span></span><a
-href="http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/)">http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/)</a> and
-also the working draft of the Open Group specification for these interfaces
-which is in review now within the <span class=SpellE>WBEMSource</span>
-Initiative (<a href="http://www.wbemsource.org/">http://www.wbemsource.org</a>).
-This provides a standardized C level interface for creating providers that can
-be registered with the Pegasus CIM Server in the same manner as the current C++
-providers. </p>
-
-<p>Today, the CMPI provider manager and interfaces are considered experimental
-and are subject to change in future versions of Pegasus&nbsp; until the CMPI
-specification is released. Information on writing providers with the CMPI
-interface is available in the draft version of the specification today (see
-above) and in the following documents (<a href="http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/doc/CMPIandC++.pdf">http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/doc/ProviderArchitecture.pdf
-</a>and <a href="http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/doc/CMPIandC++.pdf">
-http://www-124.ibm.com/sblim/doc/CMPIandC++.pdf</a>) and readme.cmpi in the
-Pegasus source root directory.</p>
-
-<h5>JMPI Java Interface Provider Manager</h5>
-
-<p>Pegasus includes an experimental provider manager for Java provider
-interfaces based on the SNIA provider interface definitions.&nbsp; This provider
-manager is&nbsp; considered alpha quality and is not compiled in the default build.&nbsp;&nbsp;
-See readme.jmpi in the Pegasus source root directory for more information.</p>
-
- </blockquote>
-</blockquote>
-
-<h3><b>Providers</b></h3>
-
-<p>There are a number of providers available in the Pegasus release.
-This includes providers in the following categories:</p>
-
-<blockquote style='margin-top:5.0pt;margin-bottom:5.0pt'>
-
-<h4>Pegasus Internal Providers</h4>
-
-<p>Pegasus provides a set of &quot;internal&quot; providers that have direct access to the
-CIMOM for information and provide information and services to support the CIMOM
-and its administration.&nbsp; &nbsp; The providers in this category are mostly defined in the directory src/pegasus/controlproviders
-and include support for the following classes:</p>
-
-<ul>
- <li>DMTF Interop classes including __Namespace,&nbsp; <span
- class=SpellE>CIM_Namespace</span>, <span class=SpellE>CIM_ObjectManager</span>,
- <span class=SpellE>CIM_CommunicationMechanism, and CIMOMStatistics.</span></li>
-</ul>
-
-<h4><b>Generic Providers</b></h4>
-
-<p>Generic <span class=SpellE>OperatingSystem</span> provider. See the
-directory <span class=SpellE>src</span>/Providers/generic.</p>
-
-<h4><b>Test/Sample Providers</b></h4>
-
-<p>See the directories <span class=SpellE>src/Providers/TestProviders</span>
-and <span class=SpellE>src</span>/Providers/Sample for more information about test and
-sample providers.</p>
-
-<h4><b>Managed System Providers</b></h4>
-
-<p><span class=SpellE>ComputerSystem</span>, <span class=SpellE>DNSAdmin</span>,
-<span class=SpellE>DNSService</span>, Operating System, Process, Processor. For
-more information on these providers see the documentation for each provider in
-the directory <span class=SpellE>src/Providers/ManagedSystem</span></p>
-
-<h4><span class="SpellE">SLP Provider</span></h4>
-
-<p><span class="SpellE">This provider acts as the definer of&nbsp; SLP
-information for SLP registration and also controls the Pegasus SLP Service
-Agent. It is treated as a normal provider rather than a control provider because
-it does not use internal functions of the CIMOM to generate any of its
-information today. (conditionally compiled today)</span></p>
-
-</blockquote>
-
-<h3><span class=SpellE><b>CIM_Schema</b></span></h3>
-
-<p>The default <span class=SpellE>CIM_Schema</span> loaded with this release is
-the DMTF CIM 2.8, Final release.&nbsp; In addition, Pegasus includes a number of
-local classes defined for Pegasus.&nbsp; These are defined in the pegasus/Schemas
-directory.&nbsp;&nbsp; CIM 2.9 preliminary<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> </span>
-schema is also available in the CVS but is not the default schema for compile.&nbsp;
-There are also a number of older schema available in the CVS.</p>
-
-<p>The mechanism to install other schemas than the default is
-defined in the mak/config.mak</p>
-
-<p style='margin-bottom:12.0pt'><b>NOTE:</b> The CIM 2.5 schema is maintained in the
-CVS repository because it remains the basis for parts of the Pegasus test
-environment.</p>
-
-<h3><b>Pegasus MOF Compilers</b></h3>
-
-<p>Pegasus implements a MOF compiler that can operate either at the client
-interface to the Pegasus CIM Server (<span class=SpellE>cimmof</span>) or directly interfacing with a CIM
-repository (<span class=SpellE>cimmofl</span>).</p>
-
-<p>The direct interface compiler is used primarily to provide an initial
-class/instance repository. <font color="#FF0000"><b>WARNING:</b></font>&nbsp;
-the use of <span class=SpellE>cimmofl</span>
-to manipulate instances in the repository bypasses any provider that is
-registered to serve these&nbsp; instances and simply installs the instances in the
-instance repository; this may result in 1) bad data in the repository if there
-are registered providers, 2) corruption of the repository if the CIM Server is
-running or, 3) MOF data that is loaded but not available until the server is
-stopped and restarted in some cases.&nbsp; Use of <span class=SpellE>cimmofl in
-general is discouraged and particularly </span>&nbsp;to manipulate
-instances served by a registered providers (ex.
-Provider registration). Use of <span
-class=SpellE>cimmof</span> rather that <span class=SpellE>cimmofl is encouraged</span>
-wherever possible.</p>

-<h3><b>Pegasus Interface APIs</b></h3>
-
-<p>Details of the Pegasus public interfaces for this release are listed in PEP
-189
-available from the web <span class=GramE>site(</span><a
-href="../Administrator/My%20Documents/processes/www.openpegasus.org">www.openpegasus.org</a>).
-That document is the <span class=SpellE>authorative</span> source for the list
-of publicly supported Pegasus APIs.&nbsp;&nbsp; The Client and Provider API were
-originally frozen at the&nbsp;Pegasus version 2.1 release. The interfaces in the
-release of Pegasus 2.1 are forward compatible to this release. Well-behaved
-clients and providers compiled to the Pegasus 2.1 or 2.2 interfaces should be
-compatible with this release without compilation.&nbsp; There have been
-extensions and new interfaces added for this release and these are marked as
-experimental. &nbsp; The Pegasus public
-interfaces includes the following major functions</p>
-
-<ol style='margin-top:0in' start=1 type=1>
- <li class=MsoNormal style='color:black;mso-list:l5 level1 lfo24;tab-stops:

-</ol>
-
-<p>In addition, there are other client interfaces which are not today in the

- <li class=MsoNormal style='color:black;mso-list:l5 level1 lfo24;tab-stops:

-
-<h3><b>WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span></b></h3>
-
-<p>The WBEM to WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span> provides a way to access
-WMI data from Windows platform systems. It converts incoming XML/CIM requests
-to Microsoft WMI requests, executes the requests, converts the results to
-XML/CIM and returns the results to the client. WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span>
-receives an HTTP message containing the XML/CIM request. It decodes the XML
-message and extracts from the HTTP message header the user credentials provided
-on the connection (username and password). The WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span>
-authenticates these credentials, verifying if the provided credentials have
-access to the desired WMI data. This is done because the WMI <span
-class=SpellE>Mapper</span> runs as a service, logged on using an account with
-administrative rights (which has all access to WMI data). Because of this, the
-WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span> impersonates the user credentials provided
-on the HTTP message to ensure that the calling user has rights to browse WMI
-data. Hence, ALL requests made to the WMI <span class=SpellE>Mapper</span> MUST
-contain user credentials.</p>

-<h2><a name="Conformance with DMTF Specifications">Conformance with DMTF Specifications</a></h2>
-
-<p>It is a major goal
-of the OpenPegasus project to both drive and utilize the DMTF CIM/WBEM
-specifications.&nbsp; However, today there are a number of known differences.&nbsp;
-As of this release, some of the differences include the following:</p>
-
-<ol>
- <li><b>Provider Registration</b> - Pegasus supports registration through a set of
- Pegasus Provider registration classes rather than support the DMTF defined Provider
-Qualifier. Pegasus will not support this qualifier in the future. See the readme for more information on provider registration.</li>
- <li>&nbsp;<b>Indications </b>-Today Pegasus supports process indications but does not
-include any specific support for lifecycle indications.</li>
- <li>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:black'>&nbsp;<b>Instance qualifiers and class
-qualifiers on some Operations</b> -
-The DMTF specifications are unclear regarding the inclusion of qualifiers on
-CIM instances.&nbsp; Some CIM Client implementations expect instances returned
-from the CIM Server to include the qualifiers defined in the class definition
-(such as KEY qualifiers on properties).&nbsp; </span>&nbsp;Pegasus today expects the provider to complete the qualifiers on instances in
-accordance with the specification and generally the interpretation is that
-Pegasus applies class level qualifiers when the includeInstance parameter is
-supplied on instance operations.&nbsp; However, Pegasus today is inconsistent in
-the return of qualifiers so that the user should NOT depend on Pegasus
-accurately honoring the includeQualifier parameter for instance operations.&nbsp;
-In the future it is expected that Pegasus will deprecate the use of qualifiers
-on instance operations completely.</p>
-
- </li>
- <li>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal>&nbsp;<b>CIM MOF compiler function for instance aliasing</b> - The
-Pegasus MOF compiler does not today support this function.&nbsp; This function is
-planned for a future version.</p>
-
- </li>
- <li>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><b>&nbsp;MultiRequest Oprations</b> - Pegasus does not support the DMTF defined MultiRequest
-Operation option.</p>
-
- </li>
- <li>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><b>&nbsp;LocalOnly option on some instance Operations </b>-
-With the 1.1 version of Specification for CIM Operations over HTTP, the
-definition of the LocalOnly parameter for the GetInstance and EnumerateInstances
-operations was modified. This change was incorrect, resulted in reduced
-functionality and introduced a number of backward compatibility issues. As a
-result of issues introduced by this change, we strongly recommend that CIM
-Clients set LocalOnly = false and do not rely on the use of this parameter to
-filter the set of set of properties returned.</p>
-
- </li>
- <li>
-
-<p class=MsoNormal><b>MOFCompiler namespace pragma</b> - The Pegasus compiler does not support the namespace pragma.</p>
-
- </li>
-</ol>
