Hello Folks,

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:

HV-Perfmon01

Right click and +Add Counter

HV-Perfmon02

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 *

HV-Perfmon03

Change the output from Line/Histogram bar to Report and enjoy the Realtime monitoring.

HV-Perfmon04

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!

Cheers,

Charbel
