Does powershell disturb the remote computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is a more a curious question.


    When executing a command against a remote computer does powershell disturb the remote computer in any way?

    • make the remote computer slower
    • the user on the remote computer will notice something
    • applications will freeze (for a moment)
    • Etc.


    Or will the remote powershell processes run without any significant nuisance.

  • Like any other program it places whatever load you specify. The only thing you can know is that the PowerShell engine is sleek and efficient and for most things places no noticeable load.

    For all of the rest of you issues I recommend learning how Windows works as everything else depends on that knowledge.  If you need deep information then you should contact a systems engineer trained in Windows to help you understand how programs work in Windows and how activities on any program can effect Windows.

    The important take-away is that PowerShell is just another program and does nothing beyond what any other program can do in Windows.  All normal rules and restrictions apply to PS.  PS is not some weird and magical beast.  It is just a program.
