Pegasus is an open-source implementationof the DMTF CIM and WBEM
standards. It is designed to be portable and highly modular. It is
coded in C++ so that it effectively translates the object concepts of
the CIM objects into a programming model but still retains the
speed and efficiency of a compiled language. Pegasus is designed to
be inherently portable and builds and runs today on most versionsof
UNIX(R), Linux, OpenVMS, and Microsoft Windows.
