Free HyperV Performance Monitor - Features

ManageEngine Hyper-V Performance Monitor tool helps an IT Admin to monitor important attributes of a Hyper-V Server. The supported versions include Hyper-V Server 2012, Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 and Hyper-V Server 2008. The performance parameters fetched by the tool are:

  1. CPU Utilization
  2. Memory Utilization
  3. Disk Read/Write Rate
  4. Network Rx/Tx

The tool updates these parameters for the host Windows server too and fetches its up time, VM count and OS version in real time.

CPU Utilization

CPU Utilization is the current percentage of the total clock cycles being consumed by the virtual system. If a processor of a single VM shows 100% utilization, and the machine has totally 2 physical processors, then we can expect the total CPU load percentage to be around 50%.

Memory Utilization

Memory Utilization is provided as a percentage of memory used to the total memory available in bytes.

Disk Read Rate

This parameter provides the number of bytes read from the disk between the previous refresh operation and the current refresh operation. This parameter will be shown in bytes/KB/MB/GB per second.

Disk Write Rate

This parameter provides the number of bytes written to the disk between the previous refresh operation and the current refresh operation. This parameter will be shown in bytes/KB/MB/GB per second.

Network Rx

Average rate at which data was received during the interval between the previous refresh cycle and the current refresh cycle. This represents the rate at which data is received across each physical NIC instance on the host. This parameter is shown in kbps ( Kilo bits per second).

Network Tx

Average rate at which data was transmitted during the interval. The rate at which data is transmitted across each physical NIC instance on the host. This parameter is shown in kbps ( Kilo bits per second).
