Quick Start

Properties

In this WMI class, all WMI properties are read-only. You can only read values but not change them.

AllocatedBaseSize

Data type UInt32

The AllocatedBaseSize property indicates the actual amount of disk space allocated for use with this page file. This value corresponds to the range established in Win32_PageFileSetting under the InitialSize and MaximumSize properties, set at system startup.

Example: 178MB

Caption

Data type String

The Caption property is a short textual description (one-line string) of the object.

CurrentUsage

Data type UInt32

The CurrentUsage property indicates how much of the total reserved page file is currently in use.

Description

Data type String

The Description property provides a textual description of the object.

InstallDate

Data type DateTime

The InstallDate property is datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

Name

Data type String

The Name property indicates the name of the page file.

Example: C:\PAGEFILE.SYS

PeakUsage

Data type UInt32

The PeakUsage property indicates the highest use page file.

Status

Data type String

The Status property is a string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses are “OK”, “Degraded” and “Pred Fail”. “Pred Fail” indicates that an element may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future. An example is a SMART-enabled hard drive. Non-operational statuses can also be specified. These are “Error”, “Starting”, “Stopping” and “Service”. The latter, “Service”, could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither “OK” nor in one of the other states.

'OK','Error','Degraded','Unknown','Pred Fail','Starting','Stopping','Service','Stressed','NonRecover','No Contact','Lost Comm'

TempPageFile

Data type Boolean

The TempPageFile property specifies whether a temporary page file has been created, usually because there is no permanent page file on the current computer system.
