Managed Object Format (MOF) is a compiled language created by the Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF). MOF is based on the Interface Definition Language (IDL). You can use MOF to define static or dynamic classes and class instances. You place these definitions in a file that you submit to the MOF compiler, Mofcomp.exe. The MOF compiler parses the file and adds the classes and instances defined in the file to the Common Information Model (CIM) repository
