Working Group Description
The DMTF’s System Management BIOS (SMBIOS) Working Group is responsible for the SMBIOS standard, which delivers management information via system firmware.
For OS-present, OS-absent, and pre-OS environments, SMBIOS offers motherboard and system vendors a standard format to present management information about their products. By extending the system firmware interface, SMBIOS can be used with management applications that use the DMTF’s Common Information Model (CIM) or another technology, such as SNMP. It eliminates the need for error-prone operations, such as probing system hardware for presence detection.
- DMTF members are encouraged to contribute and access the work of the SMBIOS Working Group via its private, members-only workspace. Non-members, learn more and join the DMTF to participate.
