CIM cmdlets

The CIM cmdlets are found in the CIMcmdlets module.

Get-Command -Module CimCmdlets  produces this list of names.  I’ve added some information on the tasks they perform

Get-CimAssociatedInstance  is for working with WMI associated classes
Get-CimClass  is for discovering the properties and methods of a WMI class
Get-CimInstance    is analogous to  Get-WmiObject
Get-CimSession 
Invoke-CimMethod    is analogous to Invoke-WMIMethod   
New-CimInstance  can be used for creating a new WMI instance in certain circumstances
New-CimSession
New-CimSessionOption
Register-CimIndicationEvent    is analogous to Register-WMIEvent
Remove-CimInstance  is analogous to Remove-WMIObject
Remove-CimSession
Set-CimInstance  is analogous to Set-WMIInstance

The CIM session cmdlets are for working with the CIm sessions which are analogous to PowerShell remoting sessions but are used by the CIM cmdlets AND the new WMI based cmdlets in Windows 8/2012 such as the networking cmdlets
