Add-NetEventVmSwitch

Last Updated: 2/14/2017

SYNOPSIS

Adds a Hyper-V virtual switch as a filter on a provider.

SYNTAX

Add-NetEventVmSwitch [-Name] <String> [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf]
 [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Add-NetEventVmSwitch cmdlet adds a Hyper-V virtual switch as a filter on a Remote Packet Capture provider. Use this cmdlet multiple times to add multiple Hyper-V virtual switches. To get existing Hyper-V virtual switches, use the Get-NetEventVmSwitch cmdlet.

The protocol stack uses multiple layers to transmit, receive, and process network traffic as packets. The provider logs network traffic as Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) events.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Add a Hyper-V virtual switch on a provider

PS C:\>New-NetEventSession -Name "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventVMSwitch -Name "Network Adapter 2 - Virtual Switch"

This example adds a Hyper-V virtual switch as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider for a network session. After you complete these commands to configure the network session, you can start and stop the event and packet capture for the network session by using the Start-NetEventSession and Stop-NetEventSession cmdlets.

The first command uses the New-NetEventSession cmdlet to create a network session named NESession01.

The second command uses the Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider cmdlet to add a Remote Packet Capture provider for the session named NESession01.

The third command adds a Hyper-V virtual switch as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Name

Specifies a name for the Hyper-V virtual switch.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: wi

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.
