What is iSMBIOS?

iSMBIOS is a lightweight implementation that allows us to obtain the SMBIOS information

This library implements DMTF Specification 3.4.0a (Preliminary version) and olders versions

Usage

Call DMI.Instance.Structures for gets all SMBIOS structures availables.

Examples

  1. Gets and prints SMBIOS version.

    Console.WriteLine($@" SMBIOS Version > {DMI.Instance.SmbiosVersion}");
    
  2. Gets and prints all SMBIOS availables structures.

    DmiStructureCollection structures = DMI.Instance.Structures;
    foreach (DmiStructure structure in structures)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($@" {(int)structure.Class:D3}-{structure.FriendlyClassName}");
    
        int totalStructures = structure.Elements.Count;
        if (totalStructures > 1)
        {
            Console.WriteLine($@"     > {totalStructures} structures");
        }
    }
    
  3. Gets and prints the implemented SMBIOS structure version.

    DmiStructureCollection structures = DMI.Instance.Structures;
    foreach (DmiStructure structure in structures)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($@" {(int)structure.Class:D3}-{structure.FriendlyClassName}");
    
        DmiClassCollection elements = structure.Elements;
        foreach (DmiClass element in elements)
        {
            Console.WriteLine($@"     > Version > {element.ImplementedVersion}");
        }
    }
    
  4. Gets a specific SMBIOS structure.

    DmiStructureCollection structures = DMI.Instance.Structures;
    DmiStructure bios = structures[SmbiosStructure.Bios];
    if (bios != null)
    {
        /// structure exist!!!
    }
    
  5. Gets a single property directly.

    DmiStructureCollection structures = DMI.Instance.Structures;
    object biosVersion = structures.GetProperty(DmiProperty.Bios.BiosVersion);
    if (biosVersion != null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine($@" BIOS Version > {biosVersion}");
    }
    
    string biosVendor = structures.GetProperty<string>(DmiProperty.Bios.Vendor);
    Console.WriteLine($@" > BIOS Vendor > {biosVendor}");
    
  6. Prints all SMBIOS structures properties

     DmiStructureCollection structures = DMI.Instance.Structures;      
     foreach (DmiStructure structure in structures)
     {
         DmiClassCollection elements = structure.Elements;

             Console.WriteLine($@" {(int)structure.Class:D3}-{structure.FriendlyClassName} structure detail");
             Console.WriteLine(@" ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————");
