PowerShell One Liner for Count of all Documents in SharePoint 2010 Farm

Last week I had a client reach out to me, asking for a count of all documents in their SharePoint 2010 internal farm. They were planning on implementing Metalogix StoragePoint and were working on estimates for the deployment.
After a bit of work with PowerShell, I was able to throw a single line of PowerShell that sum’s the entire environment for me.

Get-SPSite -Limit All | Get-SPWeb -Limit All | % { $_.Lists} | ? { $_ -is [Microsoft.SharePoint.SPDocumentLibrary] } | % { $total+= $_.ItemCount} ; $total
