Description

The Get-NetAdapterLso cmdlet gets the state of large send offload (LSO) settings on the network adapter. LSO is a technology where the work of segmenting data into network frames is performed by the network adapter instead of by the TCP/IP stack. With LSO, TCP/IP sends very large data packets down to the network adapter driver and the network adapter hardware. The network adapter breaks up the data into smaller network-sized frames. This increases the speed of high-end send operations and decreases the processor usage of the computer, because the work is performed on the network adapter.

Examples

Example 1: Get the LSO properties for the specified network adapter

PS C:\> Get-NetAdapterLso -Name "MyAdapter"

This command gets the LSO properties of the network adapter named MyAdapter.

Example 2: Display all the LSO properties for the specified network adapter

PS C:\> Get-NetAdapterLso -Name "MyAdapter" | Format-List -Property "*"

This command displays all of the LSO properties of the network adapter named MyAdapter.

Example 3: Get all network adapters that have LSO enabled

PS C:\> Get-NetAdapterLso -Name "*" | Where-Object -FilterScript { $_.Enabled }

This command gets all network adapters with LSO enabled.

Required Parameters

-InterfaceDescription

Specifies an array of network adapter interface descriptions. For a physical network adapter this is typically the vendor name of the network adapter followed by a part number and description, such as Contoso 12345 Gigabit Network Device.

Type:String[]
Aliases:ifDesc, InstanceID
Position:Named
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
-IncludeHidden

Indicates that the cmdlet includes both visible and hidden network adapters in the operation. By default only visible network adapters are included. If a wildcard character is used in identifying a network adapter and this parameter has been specified, then the wildcard string is matched against both hidden and visible network adapters.

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

Specifies an array of network adapter names.

Type:String[]
Aliases:ifAlias, InterfaceAlias
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
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetAdapter LsoSettingData

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
