Tips: How to get the reliability data from the remote PCs using Windows PowerShell 2.0

Most of us still use Windows Vista as we feel bad or struggle with Windows 7. If you are such a user, this article will be one of the most useful. By default, Windows Vista has come out with the Reliability Monitor. It is used to access the system ability data from the Reliability Analysis Component (RAC) database in a graphical manner. Moreover, this tool lets you view the system stability trend and associated events that might have affected that stability. However, in Windows 7, you can access the RAC database via WMI and to make the IT pros view and use the data more flexibly. As Windows 7 has come out with Windows PowerShell 2.0, you can have the remote scripting capabilities comprising access to WMI. By combining these technologies, you can get the reliability data from user systems without having to physically visit their offices. Check out the following commands.

get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityRecords -computername -property Message |
select-object -first 5 Message |
format-list *

Distribution of reliability events:
get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityRecords -property @("SourceName", "EventIdentifier") |
group-object -property SourceName,EventIdentifier -noelement |
sort-object -descending Count |
select-object Count,Name |
format-table *

The latest stability index for multiple machines:
@("USER-PC-1", "USER-PC-2") |
foreach-object -process {
get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityStabilityMetrics -computername $_ -property @("__SERVER", "SystemStabilityIndex") |
select-object -first 1 __SERVER,SystemStabilityIndex |



View a graphical display of the stability index:
get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityStabilityMetrics -property @("SystemStabilityIndex","EndMeasurementDate") |
foreach-object -process {
$t = "";
for ($i = 0; $i -le $_.SystemStabilityIndex * 5; $i++) { $t = $t + "=" };
$_.EndMeasurementDate + " " + $t

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
