Get-BrokerPowerTimeScheme

Oct 12, 2015

Gets power management time schemes for desktop groups.

Syntax

Get-BrokerPowerTimeScheme [-Uid] <Int32> [-Property <String[]>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Get-BrokerPowerTimeScheme [[-Name] <String>] [-DesktopGroupUid <Int32>] [-Metadata <String>] [-ReturnTotalRecordCount] [-MaxRecordCount <Int32>] [-Skip <Int32>] [-SortBy <String>] [-Filter <String>] [-Property <String[]>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Finds power time schemes matching the specified search criteria. Each desktop group in the site can have a number of power time schemes associated with it, and these time schemes control how the power states of machines in the group are managed.

If no search criteria are specified all power time schemes for all desktop groups are obtained.

Each power time scheme covers one or more days of the week, and defines which hours of those days are considered peak times and which are off-peak times. In addition, the time scheme defines a pool size value for each hour of the day for the days of the week covered by the time scheme. No one desktop group can be associated with two or more time schemes that cover the same day of the week.

For any day of the week not covered by any power time scheme, it is assumed that all hours are off-peak and no pool size management is required for any of the hours.

For more information about the power policy mechanism and pool size management, see 'help about_Broker_PowerManagement'.

-------------------------- BrokerPowerTimeScheme Object

The BrokerPowerTimeScheme object represents a power time scheme, defining peak/off-peak hours and idle pool sizes for desktop groups. It contains the following properties:

-- DaysOfWeek (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.TimeSchemeDays)

The days of the week for which this scheme applies to (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Weekdays, Weekend).

-- DesktopGroupUid (System.Int32)

The desktop group that this time scheme is for.

-- DisplayName (System.String)

The name of this time scheme, as displayed in the Studio console.

-- MetadataMap (System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<string, string>)

Metadata for this power time scheme.

-- Name (System.String)

The unique name of this time scheme.

-- PeakHours (System.Boolean[])

A set of 24 boolean flag values, one for each hour of the day. The first value in the array relates to midnight to 00:59, the next one to 1 AM to 01:59 and so on, with the last array element relating to 11 PM to 11:59. If the flag is $true it means that the associated hour of the day is considered a peak time; if it is $false it means that it is considered off-peak.

-- PoolSize (System.Int32[])

A set of 24 integer values, one for each hour of the day. The first value in the array relates to midnight to 00:59, the next one to 1 AM to 01:59 and so on, with the last array element relating to 11 PM to 11:59. The value defines the number of machines (either as an absolute number or a percentage of the machines in the desktop group) that are to be maintained in a running state, whether they are in use or not. A value of -1 has special meaning: pool size management does not apply during such hours.

-- PoolUsingPercentage (System.Boolean?)

A boolean flag to indicate whether the integer values in the pool size array are to be treated as absolute values (if this value is $false) or as percentages of the number of machines in the desktop group (if this value is $true).

-- Uid (System.Int32)

Unique internal identifier of a time scheme.

Parameters

-Uid<Int32>

Gets only the power time scheme with the specified Uid.

Required? true
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Name<String>

Gets only power time schemes with the specified name.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-DesktopGroupUid<Int32>

Gets only the power time schemes associated with the specified desktop group.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Metadata<String>

Gets records with matching metadata entries.

The value being compared with is a concatenation of the key name, a colon, and the value. For example: -Metadata "abc:x*" matches records with a metadata entry having a key name of "abc" and a value starting with the letter "x".

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-ReturnTotalRecordCount<SwitchParameter>

When specified, this causes the cmdlet to output an error record containing the number of records available. This error record is additional information and does not affect the objects written to the output pipeline. See about_Broker_Filtering for details.

Required? false
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-MaxRecordCount<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of records to return.

Required? false
Default Value 250
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Skip<Int32>

Skips the specified number of records before returning results. Also reduces the count returned by -ReturnTotalRecordCount.

Required? false
Default Value 0
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-SortBy<String>

Sorts the results by the specified list of properties. The list is a set of property names separated by commas, semi-colons, or spaces. Optionally, prefix each name with a + or - to indicate ascending or descending order. Ascending order is assumed if no prefix is present.

Required? false
Default Value The default sort order is by name or unique identifier.
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Filter<String>

Gets records that match a PowerShell style filter expression. See about_Broker_Filtering for details.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Property<String[]>

Specifies the properties to be returned. This is similar to piping the output of the command through Select-Object, but the properties are filtered more efficiently at the server.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AdminAddress<String>

Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address.

Required? false
Default Value Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
Accept Pipeline Input? false

Input Type

None You cannot pipe input into this cmdlet.

Return Values

Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PowerTimeScheme

Get-BrokerPowerTimeScheme returns all power time schemes that match the specified selection criteria.
