Get-SmbBandwidthLimit

Gets the list of SMB bandwidth caps for each traffic category.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Query (cdxml)
Get-SmbBandwidthLimit [[-Category] <BandwidthLimitCategory[]> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SmbBandwithLimit cmdlet gets the list of Server Message Block (SMB) bandwidth caps for each traffic category. SMB bandwidth caps limit the amount of data that the server can send for each traffic category.

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.

-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.

Notes

  • Before you can use this cmdlet, you must enable the feature by using the following command:
    Install-WindowsFeature -Name FS-SMBBW
    For more information, type Get-Help Install-WindowsFeature. When you enable the feature, the SMB server creates a new SMB performance counter set that has an instance per category. The performance counters in this set use the same counters as the SMB Client Shares performance counters.

Examples

Example 1: Get SMB bandwidth caps for all categories

This command gets the SMB bandwidth caps for all traffic categories.


PS C:\> Get-SmbBandwidthLimit

Example 2: Get SMB bandwidth caps for a category

This command gets the SMB bandwidth cap for Live Migration traffic.
