W200x PowerShell Rules

W200x PowerShell Rules allow you to create your own custom PowerShell scripts to monitor and save performance data from your SharePoint environment.

PowerShell is essentially Microsoft’s next-generation WMI. SharePoint interfaces very well with PowerShell and allows access to all the counters, properties and commands that SharePoint provides.

Prior to using PowerShell Rules, you must have Windows PowerShell (1.0 or higher) installed on your system – PowerShell is free of charge and executes as a standalone application (no services required).

Argent’s sample W200x PowerShell Rule, PS_CPU, provides examples on built-in functions and variables to use when designing your own PowerShell Rules.
