Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is a Microsoft-provided service which runs in the Guest OS of a VM. Turbonomic uses it to understand which applications are running on Windows computing systems, and to understand their resource consumption.
(6.4 version family, only) Turbonomic uses WMI to create and name application instances, stitch the named instances to the given VM, and feed per-application resource consumption to Turbonomic.
A Workload Controller is the Turbonomic Supply Chain entity that represents a Kubernetes controller. This entity watches the state of your Container Pod entities and then requests changes where needed. You can execute container resize actions when you set the scope to a Workload Controller.
A Workload Controller executes container actions, but Turbonomic does not recommend actions to perform on the Workload Controller itself. When you scope to a Workload Controller and view the actions list, the actions apply to containers.
