Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
The command run by the job can contain cmdlets, functions, scripts, or any other command-based tasks. It is designed to run commands that take an extended amount of time to complete, but it can run any command in the background.
Jobs are executed within their own runspaces, and those runspaces can exist on the local computer or any number of remote computers. See the ChildJobs property for more information about jobs that run on multiple runspaces.
