If you read the WQL series of posts on this blog, you may be aware by now that I was working on converting that series in to an eBook. So, finally, I made it.
This ebook has 9 chapters (56 pages of WMI and PowerShell goodness) and here is the high-level content outline:
- Tools for the job
- WMI Data queries
- WMI Event Queries: Introduction
- Intrinsic Event Queries
- Extrinsic Event Queries
- Timer Events
- WMI Schema Queries
- WMI Event consumers
As you see above, the content of this book much more than what was there in the blog posts. I have included a bonus chapter (WMI event consumers) to show how permanent event consumers can be create using both WMI and the PowerEvents module by @pcgeek86. I’ve spent almost 38hrs of editing on this book. This is excluding the hours my friends — Shay Levy, @Alexandair, Philip LaVoie, and Robert Robelo — spent reviewing the content. I am very thankful to them for spending their weekend reviewing this ebook and providing the feedback. Their feedback really helped shape up the content.
Also, thanks to all of you for leaving your feedback on this blog. If you find any corrections to be made or questions, leave a comment on this page. I will be more than happy to answer or update the book.
Finally, if you liked the content, please spread the word by tweeting or sharing the link with your friends.
