Synopsis

Adds a virtual network adapter as a filter on the provider.

Syntax

Add-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter [-Name] [-CimSession] [-ThrottleLimit] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Add-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet adds a network adapter of a virtual machine as a filter on a Remote Packet Capture provider. Specify the name of the virtual network adapter. The protocol stack uses multiple layers to transmit, receive, and process network traffic as packets. The provider logs network traffic as Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) events.

Use this cmdlet multiple times to add multiple adapters. To see which virtual adapters belong to the provider, use the Get-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet.

Parameters

-CimSession <CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ThrottleLimit <Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Add a virtual network adapter to the provider

This example adds a virtual network adapter as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider for a network session. After you complete these commands to configure the network session, you can start and stop the event and packet capture for the network session by using the Start-NetEventSession and Stop-NetEventSession cmdlets.

The first command uses the New-NetEventSession cmdlet to create a network session named NESession01.

The second command uses the Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider cmdlet to add a Remote Packet Capture provider for the session named NESession01.

The third command adds a virtual network adapter named LargeGuid as a filter on the Remote Packet Capture provider.

PS C:\>New-NetEventSession -Name "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "NESession01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventVMNetworkAdapter -Name "LargeGuid"
