CDM Common Diagnostic Model
As an extension of DMTF’s Common Information Model (CIM), the Common Diagnostic Model (CDM) specification is widely used within the industry to evaluate the health of computer systems in multi-vendor environments. CDM creates diagnostic instrumentation that can be utilized by platform management applications, and its tight synergy with the other manageability domains in CIM further enables integration of diagnostics into critical management functions.
CDM is an OS- and platform-neutral architecture for:
- Discovering diagnostics and their capabilities
- Controlling diagnostic execution
- Retrieving diagnostics results
CDM helps to deliver additional compatibility in cross-platform system diagnostics through a conformance testing program and other activities, such as interoperability events.
How can CDM benefit you?
- Allows consistent diagnostics for various components in a computer or server system
- Allows for platform- and language-neutral representation of diagnostics systems
- Allows for easy verification of the interoperability of diagnostics modules
- Leverages multiple hardware vendor diagnostics into an industry standard solution
- Enables the reuse of diagnostics across multiple use cases; factory, field and repair
DMTF welcomes feedback on our standards, but requires that individuals submitting comments first agree to our DMTF Feedback Policy.
