Gets network event sessions.
Get-NetEventSession [[-Name] [<String>]] [-CimSession [<CimSession>]] [-ThrottleLimit [<Int32>]] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-NetEventSession [-AssociatedEventProvider [<CimInstance>]] [-CimSession [<CimSession>]] [-ThrottleLimit [<Int32>]] [<CommonParameters>]
The Get-NetEventSession cmdlet gets network event sessions. A session controls how the computer logs events and, optionally, network traffic, or packets.
Use this cmdlet to display configuration settings for the session. The configuration settings include the following:
-- Whether the session writes logs to a local file or sends events to live display.
-- For local file logging, the maximum size and location of the .etl file.
-- The maximum number of buffers and size of a buffer.
You can also use this cmdlet to see if the session is running, such as after you run the Start-NetEventSession cmdlet.
