Measure-command snippets provide required data for script without running jobs, Is there any snippet available for measuring background job performance. Thanks Abhay May 26, 2016 at 9:13 pm #40448 jonathanweinbergParticipant So, I'm very sorry to revive this very old thread, but several Google searches let me here. Here's what I figured out, about trying to measure background job performance. It's actually stored as part of the job! Here's what I did: Ran a job. It showed up as "Job1". When it was complete, I ran: ((Get-Job Job1).PSEndTime.TimeOfDay - (Get-Job Job1).PSBeginTime.TimeOfDay).TotalMinutes To explore what else is available, use Get-Member. So run: ((Get-Job Job1).PSBeginTime.TimeOfDay) | Get-Member Hope this helps someone!

Loop that waits 1 second and does Get-Job to see if it's running. 3. When it is not running, exit the loop and finish the script. I think that would work for you.
