HP WMI Storage Agent question

What service does this  agent/service   provide?

I , like so many others,  have had to stop this service in order to solve my issue of failed  backups to LTO4 TBU's


I use CA Arcserve 16  and in my research,  it seems that most industry leading backup programs  have users that have wrestled with this for years now.


So now that i ahve the sevice stopped on my new Proliant G8, my question is...what service /support does the HP WMI Storage Agent provide? what are the consequences of having this serivce stopped /disabled?
