Cimbiote allows writing and running CIM providers written in Python. It is intended to make CIM development more accessible to developers. A good analogy is that Cimbiote is to CIM as mod_python is to Apache. Plugins are distributed as separate RPMs. Incoming CIM requests are routed through Cimbiote to the appropriate plugins and back into Cimbiote, allowing CIM plugins to be written without any C or C++ code, and, more importantly, without vast knowledge of CIM. Cimbiote plugins register MOF files like any other CIM provider, and are fully accessible over standard CIM tools like wbemxec and wbemcli.
