  • I'm not aware of any Powershell to get running timer jobs.  However you could write something like this:

    # Get current date
    $date = Get-Date
    # Show current date
    Write-Host "Looking for running jobs with a Last Run Time of greater than or equal to" $date
    # Get all Timer jobs and iterate
    Get-SPTimerJob | ForEach-Object {
      # Get last run time for job
      $lastRunTime = $_.LastRunTime
      # If run time is greater than/equal to write it out
      if ($lastRunTime -ge $date)
         Write-Host $_.Name", last run at" $_.LastRunTime

  • Well, it does not do the trick:

    1) A timer job could have lasted less then a second and be launched after the the script was launched, but it was finished

    2) If timer job was started before this script was run but still is running it want be listed in the results.
