Updated: January 4, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Get-SMServerEvent

Gets the details of events generated in one or more event logs by log file name or event query.

Syntax

Parameter Set: GetServerEventDetail5
Get-SMServerEvent [-AsJob] [-BatchSize <UInt32> ] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-EndTime <UInt64[]> ] [-Level <EventLevelFlag[]> ] [-Log <String[]> ] [-QueryFile <String[]> ] [-QueryFileId <Int32[]> ] [-StartTime <UInt64[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-SMServerEvent cmdlet gets the details of events in one or more event logs by log file name or event query. Windows Server generates log entries for application, security, system, setup, and forwarded events.

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.
