Hyper-V performance monitoring

By using the virtualization technology, Microsoft Hyper-V (formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization) creates and manages a virtualized computing environment. As they turn out to be important players in the virtualization space, monitoring Hyper-V health and performance is critical to know if they are performing well at all times.

Why is Hyper-V monitoring important?

Managing virtual infrastructure is as important as managing physical infrastructure. The increase in virtual infrastructure complicates monitoring for network and system admins as they have to monitor different resources at the host and VM levels. With the Site24x7 Hyper-V monitoring tool, you can:

  • Discover and monitor your Hyper-V environment: Identify the CPU and memory load, disk usage and network capacity of the applications to be included in the virtual infrastructure.
  • Gain insight on Hyper-V performance counters: Gather metrics on hypervisor, VMs, processor, network, storage and more for both your host server and VMs.
  • Get alerted for different metrics: Know the status of your VM or when your memory/CPU usage starts to spike.
  • Extensive performance reports and graphs: Compare and view all your stats to study the performance of your Hyper-V servers to stay on top of outages.

Complete Hyper-V monitoring tool

Complete overview of your Hyper-V environment

View an aggregate summary of all the active, down and trouble virtual machines (VMs) in your Hyper-V environment. Also, get their CPU/memory usage and the processor count. Analyze active resource consumption, and manage them based on CPU and memory usage to ensure adequate resource allocation for all your VM groups.

Hyper-V performance monitoring

Oversee each individual VM

Get details on the CPU usage, replication and parent checkpoint of each VM. Stats on the replication mode and its health prove useful to ensure workload continuity and recovery when outages occur. Checkpoints help recreate a specific state or condition to troubleshoot a problem.

Measure processor performance

Virtual machines are provided a certain number of virtual processors, which use up resources on actual processor cores on the server (logical processors). Knowing the amount of cores that the virtual machine can see and use in a system and the rate of hypercalls made on the virtual processor is essential for Hyper-V performance management.

Monitoring Hyper-V performance

Get stats on virtual network adapters

Monitor the health of virtual network adapters and virtual switch by knowing their bytes traversal and packets traversal per second. This helps to identify and assess the resource load on each network connection to prevent rapid increase in the number of VMs on a single host server, that could lead to a system crash.

Hyper-V server monitoring

Monitor storage and virtual storage

Storage issues can have a direct impact on the performance of the end-user application. Thus, it is critical to analyze the disk usage of the entire Hyper-V environment as well as for each VM. Gain inputs on read/write/flush operations and the number of errors occured on the virtual device.

Hyper-V performance monitoring tool

Manage your VMs right

Set the startup, minimum/maximum physical memory that a VM is allowed to use and the total number of processors allocated to that VM. Decide how each individual VM has to act in the Hyper-V environment by using the start/stop/restart options. Automate the start, stop and restart of a Hyper-V VM(s) when there is a threshold violation, using our IT Automation tool.
