  • Hi,

    Some WMI operations, such as getting data or executing most methods, do not require that the account run as an administrator, I don’t think you need to assign specific permissions to get those performance data.

    For more information about default access permissions, see Access to WMI Namespaces and Executing Privileged Operations.

    More information here:

  • Hi Leon,

    From the link provided it requires the user to be in administrators group to run the commands.

    So any regular user (even those restricted) can access performance data?

    Thanks,

  • "Access to WMI namespaces differs depending on whether the script is run in elevated mode. Some WMI operations, such as getting data or executing most methods, do not require that the account run as an administrator.

    For only reading performance data through WMI, you do not need administrator privileges.
