As I'm learning PS, one item I'd like more insight on is how to gather Active Directory authentication metrics. We have a multi-domain forest with global presence.
Given a list of DCs, how can I get authentication metrics for a given time period of per second or minute. I presume this would involve the Get-Event command.
Thanks in advance,
No, that's not what Get-Event really does. You'd need to query performance counters, which is usually done through WMI. And those are just snapshots of the performance at that point in time - as far as I'm aware, nothing in Windows actually logs ongoing statistics. So there's no historical record.
