PoshTip #5 – Measure your Powershell script

PoshTip #5  – Measure your Powershell script

First method

PowerShell has a built in command Measure-Command. It is a great cmdlet to quickly find how much a command takes to execute.

Measure-Command { Get-Process }


If you want to see the output

Measure-Command { Get-Process | Out-Default }

Second method

You can also use the .NET Stopwatch object

$MeasureCMD = [Diagnostics.Stopwatch]::StartNew()
