Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1

Updated: October 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Get-SilData

Displays a point in time collection of all Software Inventory Logging data.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Collect0
Get-SilData [[-FileName] <String> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SilData cmdlet displays a point in time collection from all Software Inventory Logging data sources. If this cmdlet runs on a Hyper-V Windows Server host that is running at least Windows Server® 2012 R2, it will also display data from all guests that are also running at least Windows Server 2012 R2 running in virtual machines on that host. Data is collected at the point in time when the cmdlet runs.

Windows Server running in guest virtual machines needs to have Software Inventory Logging started and inventory collection run at least once. The default setting is stopped.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
