Parameter Set: Clear0
Clear-DnsServerStatistics [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ZoneStatistics
Clear-DnsServerStatistics -ZoneName <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Clear-DnsServerStatistics cmdlet clears all Domain Name System (DNS) server statistics. After you have cleared the statistics, you cannot retrieve them.

If you specify the ZoneName parameter, the cmdlet clears statistics for the specified zones. If you do not specify the ZoneName parameter, the cmdlet clears aggregated server level statistics.

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.
