Publish-SilData

Initiates a point in time collection of Software Inventory Logging data and forwards it, along with any accumulated historical data, to the aggregation server. Windows Server 2012 R2 with KB3000850 applied. For more information, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3000850.

Syntax

Parameter Set: CollectThenFlush
Publish-SilData [[-FileName] <String> ] [-AsJob] [-CheckCollectionHistory] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: FlushOnly
Publish-SilData [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-UseCacheOnly] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Publish-SilData cmdlet initiates a point in time collection of all Software Inventory Logging data, and forwards the data over the network to an aggregation server, if one is specified. To identify the aggregation server, specify the TargetUri parameter of the Set-SilLogging cmdlet. If Software Inventory Logging was started by an administrator by using the Start-SilLogging cmdlet, hourly collection and forwarding of data to the aggregation server commences. In cases where Software Inventory Logging does not receive an acknowledgement from the aggregation server that data forwarding was successfully received, the feature stores that data locally and attempts to forward both cached and current data during the next scheduled forward attempt. Once the cached and current data has been forwarded successfully, the feature deletes all historical data from the local server.

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.

-CheckCollectionHistory

Indicates that this cmdlet checks whether the current data set varies from the previous collection results. If it does vary, this cmdlet publishes a full set of the data to the aggregation server at the target uniform resource identifier (URI). If the data set does not vary, this cmdlet publishes a small package of data that identifies the computer to the aggregation server.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-FileName<String>

Specifies the name of a file. This file is used by Software Inventory Logging to define the data sources. Because Software Inventory Logging has an inherent default value, you do not usually need to specify this parameter.

-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.
