Microsoft Hyper-V Monitoring Tools

Hyper V Monitoring

Microsoft Hyper-V is a hypervisor-based virtualization solution for x86-64 systems and an important player in the booming server virtualization space; a critical part of a working IT environment, it needs to be tracked and observed constantly to ensure zero downtime.

Effectively monitor Hyper-V health and performance.

Applications Manager also provides visibility into the resource utilization of Hyper-V infrastructure, which in turn helps in capacity planning. With out-of-the-box reports, graphical views, alarms, thresholds and comprehensive fault management capabilities, IT administrators can maximize Hyper-V server uptime and ensure their Hyper-V environment runs at peak performance. With the aid of end-user monitoring, the IT team can gain valuable insight into the user experience, both before and after a virtualization project. The Hyper-V monitoring feature, along with the support for VMware and Citrix XenServer enables you to manage virtualization solutions from multiple vendors from a single management console.

Hypervisor CPU Usage

Know which resource is consuming more CPU. Find out if CPUs are running at full capacity or if they are being underutilized. Metrics tracked include Total CPU utilization, Guest CPU utilization, Hypervisor CPU utilization, idle CPU utilization, etc.

Networking and Virtual Network Statistics

Monitor the health and status of the network interfaces, virtual network adapters, legacy virtual network adapters and virtual switch. The performance can be monitored through attributes such as input/output traffic utilization, offloaded connections, outbound packets errors, data receive rate, data transfer rate, packets received/transmitted, health of interface, etc.
