Microsoft Hyper-V falls under a special type of software called 'hypervisors' which are used to create and host Virtual Machines (VMs) in a network environment. Hyper-V VMs can be created in devices that run on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. The Hyper V architecture generally consists of a Hyper-V host being hosted on a Windows device, under which there are several Hyper V VMs. Hyper V is preferred in networks that predominantly use Windows-based Operating Systems since it saves the cost of procuring an additional virtualization platform and provides flexibility using the existing network devices itself.

Hyper V hosts and VMs are like any other network resources, they need to be constantly monitored to ensure minimum downtime and optimal performance. There are several free and paid Hyper-V monitoring software available currently, and some major vendors even provide support to integrate a Hyper-V monitoring tool with a larger network monitoring solution, so that the user does not need to constantly keep switching between apps to know their network status. This being said, most Hyper-V management tools do fall short when it comes to extensive monitoring of your Hyper-V virtual machines.

Monitor Hyper-V using ManageEngine OpManager

OpManager now extends its virtualized infrastructure monitoring capabilities to also support Hyper V devices, in addition to monitoring VMware devices. OpManager's dedicated Hyper-V management tools provide all the visibility you need to manage your Hyper-V virtual infrastructure.

Automate Hyper-V discovery and classification

Hyper-V discovery  - ManageEngine OpManager

OpManager uses WMI to discover, classify, and monitor the Microsoft Hyper-V devices. All you need to do is specify the WMI credentials, discover the Hyper-V hosts and you are good to go. OpManager discovers the devices, classifies them under the 'Virtualization' category, and associates the predefined monitors using the device templates.

Actively track your Hyper-V Inventory and the resources allocated

Hyper-V monitoring tool  - ManageEngine OpManager

The biggest challenge in virtual infrastructure maintenance is to avoid sprawl and zombie VMs. This is achieved only by maintaining an active tracking of a virtual machine list per host and a list that details resources allocated to each virtual machine. This level of proactive Hyper-V monitoring is available via OpManager's active inventory probing. OpManager acts as a highly efficient Hyper-V inventory tool.

Comprehensive Hyper-V Server monitoring, round-the-clock

Hyper-V server monitoring  - ManageEngine OpManager

Specific to Hyper-V performance monitoring, OpManager has over 40 monitors on CPU, memory, disk, and network for the Hyper-V hosts and guests. If you need to view resource usage for a Hyper-V virtual machine, you can do so by just opening the Snapshot page of the corresponding VM. Administrators can set thresholds for all these monitors and get alerted if the monitor exceeds the specified performance level.

For the host, in addition to Hyper-V monitors, admins can monitor services, Windows services, URLs/Websites, Processes, File and Folders, and Custom scripts.

Get instant notifications with proactive Hyper-V VM monitoring

Hyper-V VM monitoring  - ManageEngine OpManager
