You can very easily modify this for your own purposes however it’s even more awesome as-is if you run parallelised tests for one major input (like a computer name) but where additional information might also be passed in through object properties on a pipeline (I’ll explain why you’d want to do that later in the post). Here’s what it looks like:

Read on for code and explanation. ¬†Powershell parallelism is something that I’ve never been good at, so hopefully this makes it easier for me…
