I ahve been working with get-content -tail -wait but i am not seeing how i can keep that looking at new content and do something with what is found. Any thoughts?

I have just been working though some of the steps manually. I am looking to monitor the file in real time. I am really not sure how to go about that. I just thought get-content would be the best option. February 10, 2016 at 2:07 pm #35142 Joseph MonarchParticipant You can possibly use a Do Until to get you semi real time information. Depending on how big the file is, this could also be a burden on the system. Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
