Suppress console outputs

I have a script reading some informations with Util.Cmd() from multiple remote servers...
Util.Cmd($"wmic /node:\"{srv.server}\" OS get LastBootUpTime");
At the end I will display the results in a table.
All works fine, but I'm wondering if it's possible to suppress the console outputs of the Util.Cmd() on the result screen.

At the moment I have to clean up the output bevore I put my table on the result screen.

Thanks in advance

    Util.Cmd has a quiet overload:
    Util.Cmd($"wmic /node:\"{srv.server}\" OS get LastBootUpTime", true);
  • Thank you very much for the quick response.
    I should have thought of that myself :#

    No problem. Instead of spawning a command line application (and having to parse the text based output), you could also take a look at the built in C# WMI classes to fetch system data.

    Example from
    using System.Management;
    var searcher =
      new ManagementObjectSearcher(
        [email protected]"\\{srv.server}\root\CIMV2",
        "SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem");
    foreach (var queryObj in searcher.Get())
      Console.WriteLine("Win32_OperatingSystem instance");
      Console.WriteLine($"LastBootUpTime: {ManagementDateTimeConverter.ToDateTime(queryObj["LastBootUpTime"].ToString())}");
  • This was a greate help!
    Thank you very much.
