Viewing queues in Exchange 2013 with powershell

Now that Microsoft have changed all the GUI management I struggled to locate the queue viewer. As it turns out it is NOT part of the Exchange admin center (https://localhost/ecp). This tool is part of the Exchange Toolbox, you will find with your management package for Exchange and the queue viewer works like before.

But obviously one would prefer powershell to do so, right!

Get-Queue and Get-QueueDigest will be you friends. You would need to know your DAG prior to that…
