Alarm Rules for Microsoft Hyper-V

Veeam ONE offers the following types of alarm rules for Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure objects:

Host

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm is triggered if some host-related event is generated.

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

Windows Server service state

An alarm is triggered if the state of the specified service reports to be equal or not equal to a specific state value for a specified time (for example, if a service is paused for 10 minutes).

Power or connection state changes

An alarm is triggered if the host state reports to be equal or not equal to a specific state value (for example, if the Hyper-V host is not responding).

Resource usage is out of allowed range

An alarm is triggered if the specified counter is above or below the specified threshold value (for example, if the Total Run Time exceeds 75%).

 

Virtual Machine

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm is triggered if some VM-related event is generated (for example, if the MAC address of the VM conflicts with the MAC address of another VM existing in the virtual infrastructure).

Guest volumes are running out of free disk space

An alarm is triggered if available disk space on guest volumes is below the specified threshold value. You can choose to specify the amount of due free space as an absolute value (for example, if free disk space falls below 1 GB) or a relative value (for example, if free disk space falls below 10% of total space).

Checkpoint age for Hyper-V VM has exceeded the configured threshold

An alarm is triggered if the current checkpoint is older than a specified number of hours. This rule helps monitor forgotten checkpoints that are consuming valuable storage space and degrading performance of virtual machines.

Checkpoint size for Hyper-V VM is out of allowed range

An alarm is triggered if the size of the VM checkpoint is above or below the specified threshold value. You can choose to specify the size of the checkpoint as an absolute value (for example, if the checkpoint size exceeds 5 GB) or a relative value (for example, if the checkpoint size exceeds 10% of total available disk space).

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

Resource usage is out of allowed range

An alarm is triggered if the specified counter is above or below the specified threshold value (for example, if the Guest Run Time level exceeds 5%).

VMs with no restore points

An alarm is triggered if the age of the latest backup or replica restore point for the VM has exceeded the threshold (that is, if there are no restore points for the specified RPO period).

 

Cluster

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm will be triggered if some cluster-related event is generated.

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

 

Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV)

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm is triggered if some event occurs on Cluster Shared Volumes level.

CSV is running out of free space

An alarm is triggered if free space on the CSV is above or below the specified threshold value. You can choose to specify the free space threshold as an absolute value (for example, if the CSV space should not fall below 10 GB) or a relative value (for example, if the CSV free space should not fall below 15% of total space).

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

Resource usage is out of allowed range

An alarm is triggered if the specified counter is above or below the specified threshold value.

 

Local Storage

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm is triggered if some storage-related event is generated.

Hyper-V datastore is running out of free space

An alarm is triggered if free space on the datastore is above or below the specified threshold value. You can choose to specify the free space threshold as an absolute value (for example, if the datastore space should not fall below 10 GB) or a relative value (for example, if the datastore free space should not fall below 15% of total space).

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the state of another selected alarm is changed.

Resource usage is out of allowed range

An alarm will be triggered if the specified counter is above or below the specified threshold value (for example, the average disk queue length exceed the threshold).

 

Any Object

Rule Type

Description

Event-based rule

An alarm is triggered if some event is generated on any object.

Existing alarm

An alarm is triggered if the status of another alarm specified in the settings is changed.

Windows Server service state

An alarm is triggered if the state of the specified service reports to be equal or not equal to a specific state value for a specified time (for example, if a service is paused for 10 minutes).
