Description

The Start-FsrmStorageReport cmdlet starts generating one or more storage reports on demand. You cannot use this cmdlet to start interactive storage reports or storage reports that do not have a schedule.

You can view the reports immediately after the server generates them or e-mail the reports to a group of administrators. If you choose to open the reports immediately, you must wait while the reports are generated. Processing time varies, depending on the types of reports and the scope of the data.

Examples

Example 1: Start a storage report

PS C:\> Start-FsrmStorageReport "Monthly report"

This command starts the storage report named "Monthly report" immediately.

Example 2: Queue a storage report and set the run duration

PS C:\> Start-FsrmStorageReport "Monthly report" -Queue -RunDuration 4

This command queues the storage report named "Monthly report" to start in the next 5 minutes and specifies that the server does not run the report job any longer than 4 hours.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies an array of names of storage reports.

Type:String[]
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional 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.

Type:SwitchParameter
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[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Queue

Indicates that the server adds the report to a queue and the report should run in the next 5 minutes. Any reports that the server queues during the next 5 minutes are run together. If you do not specify this parameter, the server runs the report immediately.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RunDuration

Specifies the number of hours that the server runs the report job before canceling it. The value 0 indicates that the server runs the report job to completion.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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
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
