Use Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to remotely control NVIDIA Quadro, GRID and NVS GPUs.


NVIDIA Enterprise Management Toolkit called NVWMI lets IT administrators create scripts and programs for many administrative tasks and functions such as configuring GPU settings, retrieving GPU information, and performing automated tasks. The features of NVWMI operate across networks making it extremely powerful for remote administration and configuration of NVIDIA professional GPUs in Windows machines (virtual or physical) on corporate networks. The NVWMI SDK includes documentation and code samples demonstrating coding techniques for using NVWMI.
