Openwsman is a project intended to provide an open-source implementation of the Web Services Management specification and to expose system management information on the Linux operating system using the WS-Management protocol.
WS-Management is based on a suite of web services specifications and usage requirements that exposes a set of operations focused on and covers all system management aspects.
This specification identifies a core set of Web service specifications and usage requirements to expose a common set of operations that are central to all systems management. This comprises the abilities to:
- Discover the presence of management resources and navigate between them
Get, Put, Create, Rename, and Delete individual management resources, such as settings and dynamic values
- Enumerate the contents of containers and collections, such as large tables and logs
- Subscribe to events emitted by managed resources
- Execute specific management methods with strongly typed input and output parameters
