I would like to compare my script execution performance with and without running background jobs.
Measure-command snippets provide required data for script without running jobs,
Is there any snippet available for measuring background job performance.
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!
Perhaps you could encapsulate the Measure-Command scriptblock to include the following expression:
2. 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.
