Microsoft Hyper-V

Microsoft Hyper-V, codenamed Viridian, formerly known as Windows Server Virtualization, is a native hypervisor; it can create virtual machines on x86-64 systems running Windows. Starting with Windows 8, Hyper-V superseded Windows Virtual PC as the hardware virtualization component of the client editions of Windows NT.

Virtualization provides for server consolidation and improved utilization of your compute resources. However, it’s difficult to know if your virtualization strategy is leaving resources unused or overtaxing resources unless you’re monitoring the details of your virtualized infrastructure. LogicMonitor removes the guesswork by automating the monitoring of Microsoft Hyper-V systems.

Complete Hypervisor Monitoring

From the host to storage to network, LogicMonitor provides comprehensive visibility into a Hyper-V deployment, whether on-prem or cloud. The hypervisor is the core of how Hyper-V works; understanding the interplay of physical processors vs logical processors, along with memory usage and pressure, are critical to managing resource utilization. Pre-defined alerts explain how to alleviate issues in plain English, so you don’t have to become an expert in Hyper-V internals.

Hyper-V Virtual Machine Overview

VM sprawl occurs when inactive virtual machines are left running in the background, which can drain many resources. The continuous growth of VMs and their usage can negatively affect application performance and server operating times. Automatically discover and monitor all of your virtual machines. Track CPU utilization, memory usage and pressure, network throughput, storage performance, and more. Detailed statistics and alerts let you isolate VM performance issues quickly and easily.

Hyper-V Network Insight

LogicMonitor brings network insight within the Hyper-V network, such as the virtual switches and port data. LogicMonitor’s dynamic thresholds, LogicMonitor will notify teams when there’s anomalous network data that falls out of the expected range.

Server and Chassis Monitoring

The more VMs your Hyper-V server is running, the more critical it becomes to your service operation. In addition to Hyper-V metrics, LogicMonitor discovers and monitors the hardware supporting your Hyper-V environment, so you know about issues before they affect your customers. Has a power supply failed? Is a fan slowing? Is the chassis temperature rising? With LogicMonitor, you’ll know.
