Top Noisy Hyper-V objects

In this article

    The report analyzes alerting activity and provides information on virtual infrastructure objects that caused the greatest number of alerts across a given time range.

    Description

    The Top Noisy Hyper-V objects report is a linked report that is based on the Veeam Alert Statistics Report from the Veeam Report Library. The report is limited to the Troublemakers mode, and can provide statistics for only one time interval and predefined object class.
