Monitoring SharePoint with PowerShell

This chapter is where most of you will get the biggest bang for your buck. It is full of IT pro goodness and will really get into the guts of SharePoint administration. As mentioned earlier in this book, there used to be a time when SharePoint administrative tasks all had to be done using a command-line tool called STSAdm. This legacy tool came from the time when the SharePoint product as we know it today was called SharePoint Team Sites (therefore the STS prefix in the tool’s name). This tool was good, but it was extremely slow to execute heavy operations against the server, and it was difficult for administrators to really know what its methods were really doing in the background.
