Configuring Thresholds for Hyper-V Host and VMs

OpManager out-of-the-box offers monitoring templates for Hyper-V hosts and VMs. The templates help you configure thresholds for multiple hosts and VMs at one shot. The process is similar to that of configuring threshold to monitors available for Windows/Linux servers.

To configure the threshold value and apply the template

  1. Go to Settings → Configuration → Device templates.
  2. You can find the HyperV Server and HyperV Virtual Machine templates for the hosts and VMs respectively. Click on the required template.
  3. Click on Edit Thresholds button to configure the threshold and rearm value for the required monitors.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Associate for the devices to inherit the configurations in the template. While associating the template, click on Apply & Overwrite for the devices to remove the old and add the new configurations in the template.

Note: To edit the threshold values of a single host, go its snapshot page (Navigate to Inventory -> Devices and then click on a device to view its snapshot page) and click the Monitors tab under Inventory Details. Click on the Edit icon of a monitor to edit its threshold values.

You can also configure adaptive thresholds for CPU utilization, Memory Utilization and Response Time monitors globally across OpManager from Settings -> Monitoring -> Monitor Settings. Learn more about Adaptive Thresholds.
