Use PowerShell to Collect Network Traces—The Video

Doctor Scripto

Summary: Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, presents a video that shows how to use Windows PowerShell to collect network traces.

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I’m present a video where I show how to use Windows PowerShell to collect network traces. The steps I show are common commands that will normally be run to set up and collect network tracing. I talk about the following:

  • Creating the session
  • Adding the provider
  • Starting the session
  • Ending the session
  • Importing the log
  • Removing the session

   Note  For more information about this technique, see Use PowerShell to Parse Network Trace Logs.

Here is the video:  


Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player: Introduction to PowerShell network tracing by Ed Wilson.

Join me tomorrow when I will talk about more cool Windows PowerShell stuff.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.
