Hyper-V Hosts and Clusters

In this article

    The Hyper-V Hosts and Clusters dashboard helps you evaluate host and cluster performance in the Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure. The dashboard displays statistics on CPU, memory, disk and network utilization, and helps you identify hosts and clusters with performance issues.

    Hyper-V Hosts and Clusters Dashboard

    Widgets Included

    • Memory Pressure by Cluster

    This widget shows how the average memory pressure for all VMs on all hosts in the cluster has been changing during the week.

    • Network Usage by Cluster

    This widget shows how the average rate at which bytes are transferred to and from the cluster disk during I/O operations has been changing during the week.

    • Datastore KB per Sec by Cluster

    This widget shows how the average rate at which data is read from and written to the cluster disk has been changing during the week.

    • Top Hosts by CPU

    This widget displays weekly CPU utilization data for the top 10 most loaded hosts in your infrastructure.

    Arrows on the right show whether the average CPU usage value has changed over the previous week*.

    • Top Hosts by Memory

    This widget displays a list of hosts with the highest level of memory consumption.

    Arrows on the right show whether the average memory usage value has changed over the previous week*.

    • Top Hosts by Network

    This widget displays a list of hosts with the highest level of network usage.

    Arrows on the right show whether the average network throughput value has changed over the previous week*.

    *The arrows allow you to compare the results of this week to the results of the previous week, and to track how the trend has evolved. For example, a grey arrow pointing right next to the CPU Usage value means that CPU utilization has not changed over the past week, a green arrow pointing down means that CPU utilization has decreased, while a red arrow pointing up means that CPU utilization has increased.
