Get-TraceSource - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet

Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.

More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.


Short description
Gets the Windows PowerShell components that are instrumented for tracing.

Get-TraceSource [[-Name] <string[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-TraceSource cmdlet gets the trace sources for Windows PowerShell components that are currently in use. You 
can use the data to determine which Windows PowerShell components you can trace. When tracing, the component genera
tes detailed messages about each step in its internal processing. Developers use the trace data to monitor data flo
w, program execution, and errors. The tracing cmdlets were designed for Windows PowerShell developers, but they are
 available to all users.
