Finding the Average Group Policy Processing Time Using Microsoft PowerShell V1.1

March 24, 2016

Active Directory, PowerShell

I recently wrote about Finding the Average Group Policy Processing Time Using Microsoft PowerShell and have made a couple of changes to the script.

I have added the follow new features:

  • Allows you to specify the maximum number of seconds, default is 30, group policy processing should take. Any number greater than or equal to that number is recorded in LongGPOTimes.txt.
  • Allows you to specify an output folder.
  • Records the long GPO times in an text file.
  • Records the Average, Minimum and Maximum processing time to GPOAvgMinMaxTimes.txt.
  • GPOAvgMinMaxTimes.txt is a cumulative file and records the Average, Minimum and Maximum times for each run of the script.
  • Example GPOAvgMinMaxTimes.txt:
03/24/2016 14:23:37: Average: 33.5987071751778 seconds
03/24/2016 14:23:37: Minimum: 1 seconds
03/24/2016 14:23:37: Maximum: 708 seconds

Example content of LongGPOTimes.txt:
