Need help modifying a PowerShell script

I am using this PowerShell script to get all unique SharePoint 2010 farm users:
Get-SPSite -Limit ALL | 
Get-SPWeb -Limit ALL | 
%{Get-SPUser -Web $_.Url -Limit ALL} | 
Where-Object {$_.IsDomainGroup -ne $true} | 
select -Unique loginname | 
Measure-Object | 
select Count

Open in new window

Source: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/Get-all-unique-SharePoint-4b3d69e7

As far as I understand it I get back all the unique users since the beginning of the farm. Can this be limited to only active users or even better to active users within last 30 days?

Since I'm not remotely familiar with the SP CmdLets this is something of a guess.

Run this:
Get-SPSite -Limit ALL | 
  Get-SPWeb -Limit ALL | 
  ForEach-Object { Get-SPUser -Web $_.Url -Limit ALL } | 
  Where-Object { -not $_.IsDomainGroup } |
  Format-List *

Open in new window

And see if you can spot a field there which shows the activity value you're looking for. If you can, it can be inserted into the Where-Object statement and potentially used to do exactly what you want.

I don't believe you can get information on which users were active in SharePoint directly.  You could combine this list with information from Active Directory to limit it to users who have authenticated in the past 30 days, but that is probably not what you want.  If you really want to know who has used which SP sites in the past 30 days you will have to parse the IIS logs to find it.  Assuming you are keeping 30 days of IIS logs.
