It's hard to tell from your post what you're looking for, but this might be it:

EDIT Added link to WMI in .NET reference pages.

Take a look at the link I posted. You should be able to use it to get system information from a remote Windows machine. – Adam Luchjenbroers Dec 16 '09 at 10:23
how can we get it??? – akbar Dec 16 '09 at 11:03

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) periodically collects performance metrics from remote systems, and provides has a set of .NET APIs. It's overkill if you have just a few boxes, but it can be a good central solution if you'd like to monitor 20+ boxes.


WMI Code Creator will do most of the work for you, if you intend to use WMI.
