This site contains XML schema documents, XML instance documents, and XSLT stylesheet documents for convenience of the development community. If these documents have a DSP number, they are DMTF standards, otherwise they have been produced from the CIM Schema by using DMTF standards. For a document to be published on this site, the corresponding DMTF standard is either in Preliminary or Final status.

The DMTF advises developers to NOT FETCH THESE DOCUMENTS PROGRAMMATICALLY. This website has a limited amount of bandwidth which will not be increased. These documents are posted on this site for development purposes only and are not meant to be fetched by applications during run-time.

This site is organized according to DSP4009, which is the DMTF Process for publishing XML schema, XML documents and XSLT stylesheets.

Disclaimer:  Due to unreliable rendering of XSL stylesheets for some browsers, the DMTF does not provide active references to stylesheets in XML files on the schemas.dmtf.org website. To enable automatic stylesheet processing, download the XML file to a local file system, along with the XSL file referenced in the href attribute, and enable the xsl-stylesheet processing instruction in that local copy.

The DMTF welcomes feedback on our standards, but requires that individuals submitting comments first agree to our DMTF Feedback Policy. Note that current DMTF members should not use this feedback system - instead, submit feedback via email to the respective working group or the DMTF Vice President of Technology.
