In today’s quick post, we will monitor our Hyper-V host using Perfmon.
As you know Performance Monitor aka (Perfmon) is a system monitoring program built-in into Windows since Win NT, … it has been developed over the years to include all applications workload.
So let’s dig dive and see how to monitor our Hyper-V host…
Kick-off mmc console and choose Performance monitor:
Right click and +Add Counter
Add the following counters:
- Hyper-V Dynamic Memory Balancer\Available Memory *
- Hyper-V Dynamic Memory VM\Average Pressure *
- Hyper-V Hypervisor Logicol Processor\%Total Run Time *
- Hyper-V Hypervisor Root Virtual Processor\%Total Run Time *
- Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor\%Total Run Time *
- Hyper-V Virtual Network Adapter\Bytes/sec
- Memory\Available MBytes *
- Network Adapter\Bytes Total/sec *
- Physical Disk\Avg. Disk Bytes/Read *
- Physical Disk\Avg. Disk Bytes/Write *
- Physical Disk\Avg. Disk Read Queue Length *
- Physical Disk\Avg. Disk Write Queue Length *
Change the output from Line/Histogram bar to Report and enjoy the Realtime monitoring.
Don’t forget to save the counters as (Hyper-VMonitor.msc) so you can fire the Realtime monitoring counters at any time.
Hope this has been useful.
Until next time, enjoy your weekend!
