Displays configuration settings for Software Inventory Logging.


   [[-CimSession] <CimSession[]>]


The Get-SilLogging cmdlet displays configuration settings for Software Inventory Logging. If logging is started, Software Inventory Logging collects data daily from all 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. If you do not specify an aggregation server and the server is a virtual machine that runs on a Hyper-V host, then the daily collection forwards the Software Inventory Logging data to a location that its Windows Server host can access. The cmdlet gets the state, either started or stopped, of the daily collection, the time of day that the daily collection runs, the uniform resource identifier (URI) of the aggregation server, and the certificate thumbprint to use for encryption.
