Allows piping from Get-DbaDatabase.

Alias

-Update

Updates the status for the database by calling sp_dbmmonitorupdate before computing the results. However, if the status table has been updated within the previous 15 seconds, or the user is not a member of the sysadmin fixed server role, the command runs without updating the status.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-LimitResults

Limit results. Defaults to last two hours. Options include: LastRow LastTwoHours LastFourHours LastEightHours LastDay LastTwoDays Last100Rows Last500Rows Last1000Rows Last1000000Rows

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value LastTwoHours
Accepted Values LastRow,LastTwoHours,LastFourHours,LastEightHours,LastDay,LastTwoDays,Last100Rows,Last500Rows,Last1000Rows,Last1000000Rows
-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
