And what are "system properties"? –  Greg Beech Dec 16 '09 at 10:16
properties like OS using,which all processes are running,disk spaces. i would like to code in c# –  akbar Dec 16 '09 at 10:26
@akbar: you should provide more information regarding what you are trying to do, which lang(C#, java) or OS/ platform you are using. Also sample code will do. –  PRR Dec 16 '09 at 11:25

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.
