CDM Conformance Program

Common Diagnostics Model (CDM) Conformance Program

  • Increase interoperability between multiple clients
  • Provides means to check CDM implementations to conformance with DSP1002 standard
  • Increases market visibility to certified and conforming products in the market place
  • Promotes further industry adoption
  • Strengthens confidence in DMTF standards

The CDM Conformance Program (CDM CP) is designed to validate CDM implementations to a particular version of the CDM Implementation Requirements Specification and is managed by DMTF. CDM is used to evaluate the health of computer system components in multivendor environments. It specifies diagnostics instrumentation that can be utilized by vendors (OEMs and system builders) and platform management applicants to determine the health of a computer system components.

Companies interested in participating in the CDM CP self-test their implementation using the applicable CDM Conformance Test Suite and submit their digitally signed results to the CDM Conformance Program Administrator (an independent third party) for validation. The results will be validated by the Conformance Program Administrator. Certified results may be submitted for inclusion in the DMTF Certification Registry.
