The Get-SilLogging cmdlet displays configuration settings for Software Inventory Logging. If logging is started, Software Inventory Logging collects data hourly from Software Inventory Logging data sources, and then forwards this data over the network to an aggregation server. Specify an aggregation server by using the Set-SilLogging cmdlet. The cmdlet gets the state, either started or stopped, of the hourly collection, the date and time that the hourly collection is scheduled to start, the uniform resource identifier (URI) of the aggregation server, and the certificate thumbprint to use for secure authentication.
