Description

The Set-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider cmdlet modifies the configuration for a Remote Packet Capture provider.

Examples

Example 1: Modify a packet capture provider

PS C:\>New-NetEventSession -SessionName "Session01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventProvider -Name "Microsoft-Windows-TCPIP" -SessionName "Session01"
PS C:\> Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "Session01"
PS C:\> Set-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider -SessionName "Session01" -IpAddresses 182.168.0.1 -IpProtocol 6

This example modifies a packet capture provider.

The first command uses the New-NetEventSession cmdlet to create a new session named Session01.

The second command uses the Add-NetEventProvider cmdlet to add a TCP/IP Net provider to the session.

The third command uses the Add-NetEventPacketCaptureProvider cmdlet to add a packet capture provider to a session named Session01.

The fourth command modifies the packet capture provider settings.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-AssociatedCaptureTarget

Specifies the associated capture target as a CIM object. The capture target is one of the three following objects:

  • MSFT_NetEventNetworkAdapter
  • MSFT_NetEventVmNetworkAdapter
  • MSFT_NetEventVmSwitch

To obtain a capture target, use the Get-NetEventNetworkAdapter cmdlet, the Get-NetEventVmNetworkAdapter cmdlet, or the Get-NetEventVmSwitch cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

-AssociatedEventSession

Specifies the associated network event session, as a CIM object. To obtain the network event session, use the Get-NetEventSession cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

-CaptureType

Specifies whether the packet capture is enabled for physical network adapters, virtual switches, or both. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Physical. Captures packets from physical network adapters.
  • Switch. Captures packets from the virtual machine switch(es) on Hyper-V hosts.
  • BothPhysicalAndSwitch. Captures packets from both the physical network adapters and the virtual machine switch(es).
Type:CaptureType
Accepted values:Physical, Switch, BothPhysicalAndSwitch
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-EtherType

Specifies an array of ether types. The most common ether types and their values are IPv4 (0800), IPv6 (86DD) and ARP (0806).

Type:UInt16[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

Type:CimInstance[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

-IpAddresses

Specifies an array of IP addresses. The provider logs network traffic that matches the addresses that this cmdlet specifies. The provider joins multiple addresses by using logical OR.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-IpProtocols

Specifies an array of one or more IP protocols, such as TCP or UDP, on which to filter. The packet capture provider logs network traffic that matches this filter.

Type:Byte[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-Level

Specifies the level of Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) events for the provider. Use the level of detail for the event to filter the events that are logged. The default value for this parameter is 0x4. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • 0x5. Verbose
  • 0x4. Informational
  • 0x3. Warning
  • 0x2. Error
  • 0x1. Critical
  • 0x0. LogAlways

The provider must log the event if the value of the event is less than or equal to the value of this parameter.

Type:Byte
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-LinkLayerAddress

Specifies an array of link layer, or Media Access Control (MAC), addresses. The packet capture provider logs network traffic that matches this filter.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-MatchAllKeyword

Specifies a bitmask that restricts the events that the provider logs.

Type:UInt64
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-MatchAnyKeyword

Specifies keywords as a set of hexadecimal values. Keywords are flags that you can combine to generate values. Use a set of hexadecimal values of the keywords instead of the keyword names, and apply a filter to write ETW events for keyword matches.

Type:UInt64
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-MultiLayer

Indicates whether the capture should occur at various layers in the stack. By default, this parameter has a value of $False.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-SessionName

Specifies an array of names of sessions associated with packet capture providers.

Type:String[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShellĀ® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-TruncationLength

Specifies the display length of each captured packet. The default size is 128 bytes.

Type:UInt16
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-VmCaptureDirection

Specifies the direction of network traffic for a virtual machine capture. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Ingress. Network traffic from a virtual machine to a virtual switch.
  • Egress. Network traffic from a virtual switch to a virtual machine.
Type:VmCaptureDirection
Accepted values:Ingress, Egress, IngressAndEgress
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.
