DMI is a standard API for managing multiple client PCs from different vendors. With this API, the user can view the hardware information and warning status of each PC on the network. DMI collects the information via BIOS with DMI support.
Desktop Management Interface. A framework created by the DMTF.
Desktop Management Interface. An architecture specification defined by the Desktop Management Task Force (DMTF) designed to give vendors and users a common vendor- and protocol-neutral framework to manage desktop systems, servers, peripherals, and components.
Digital Multiplexed Interface. Gateway providing 23 digital PCM channels + 1 signaling channel at an aggregate rate of 1.544M bps. Developed by AT&T. See also CPI.
A protocol-independent, multiplatform interface for workstation and network components.
Abbreviation for Desktop Management Interface. DMI enables the management of your computer system’s software and hardware. DMI defines the software, interfaces, and data files that enable your system to determine and report information about its components. DMI agents write, retrieve, and maintain system information in data structures called management information format (MIF) files.
Desktop Management Interface. The emerging standard, developed by the Desktop Management Task Force, for a manageable platform that does not inhibit vendor differentiation and provides a common mechanism for systems management of the desktop.
A standard method of identifying PC hardware and software components automatically, without input from the user. A framework created by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF). DMTF specifications define industry-standard interfaces for instrumentation providers and management applications.

Desktop Management Interface. A protocol-independent set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that were defined by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF). These interfaces give management application programs standardized access to information about hardware and software in a system.
Desktop Management Interface. A proposed industry standard that gives computer products a unique code that will facilitate the management of desktop computers, hardware and software components, and peripherals--whether they're standalone systems or linked into networks. The DMI is being developed by the Desktop Management Task Force.
A set of APIs outlined by the DMTF, comprising three components: service layer, component interface and management interface.
Desktop Management Interface. DMI enables the management of your system's software and hardware by collecting information about the system's components, such as the operating system, memory, peripherals, expansion cards, and asset tag.
An acronym for Desktop Management Interface.
Desktop Management Interface. The Desktop Management Interface is a set of interfaces and a service provider that mediate between management applications and components residing in a system.The DMI is a free-standing interface that is not tied to any particular operating system or management process.
