Refreshing values

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

The CIM cmdlets in PowerShell v3 enable you to refresh the data in the object. Try this:

$p = Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Processor
$p | Get-CimInstance | select percentprocessortime

$p will remain unchanged. Another use for this is monitoring processes – you could check on CPU utilisation
