Table of contents

Veeam Hyper-V MP includes a set of availability and performance monitors to diagnose the state of Hyper-V infrastructure components.

Hyper-V Cluster Storage Monitors

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: Cluster Storage Status

This monitor tracks status of cluster-attached storage disks for discovered Hyper-V clusters (Critical/Failed/Offline, etc).

Veeam HyperV: Host Cluster Disk Status

This monitor tracks the status of the cluster-attached storage disks from the host perspective.

VM Status Monitors

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: VM Health

This monitor tracks health state and operational status of the Hyper-V VM.

Veeam HyperV: VM Heartbeat

This monitor tracks heartbeat state of the Hyper-V VM.

Veeam HyperV: VM Power State

This monitor tracks power state of the Hyper-V VM.

Veeam HyperV: VM Cluster Resource Status

This monitor tracks the state of a virtual machine clustered role in a failover cluster configuration.

Hyper-V Integration Services Monitors

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: VM Integration Services Status

This monitor tracks state of all enabled Hyper-V Integration Services inside a running virtual machine:

Hyper-V Heartbeat Service (vmicheartbeat)
Hyper-V Guest Shutdown Service (vmicshutdown)
Hyper-V Data Exchange Service (vmickvpexchange)
Hyper-V Time Synchronization Service (vmictimesync)
Hyper-V Remote Desktop Virtualization Service (vmicrdv)
Hyper-V Volume Shadow-Copy Requestor Service (vmicvss)

Hyper-V Host Network Container Monitors

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: Network Adapter Status

This monitor tracks the internal state of the host physical NIC.

Veeam HyperV: Network Adapter Team Status

This monitor tracks the internal state of the host teamed network adapter.

Veeam HyperV: Host Network connectivity problem

This monitor tracks the state of all physical network adapters available on the Hyper-V host.

Hyper-V Host Virtual Switch Monitors

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: Network connectivity problem on Host Virtual Switch

This monitor tracks the state of the physical network adapter or teamed network adapters configured as an uplink for the Hyper-V host virtual switch.

Self-Monitoring

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: SCVMM Connection Account (Read-only) configuration state

This monitor alerts that the Run As account  in profile Veeam Hyper-V MP SCVMM Connection Account (Read-only) is not configured.

Note if you do not have SCVMM in your environment you may disable this monitor.

Veeam HyperV: Licensed socket count exceeded

This monitor is watching the status of the Veeam License installed on the Veeam Virtualization Extensions Server. This license is defined as the total number of CPU sockets on physical Hyper-V hosts that are monitored by the Veeam Management Pack.

Performance Monitors

The following monitors analyze performance metrics for Hyper-V clusters, hosts and VMs:

Monitor

Description

Veeam HyperV: Cluster CPU Usage

This monitor tracks CPU usage in the cluster (in percentage).

Veeam HyperV: Cluster Disk Latency Analysis

This monitor tracks latency for cluster disks.

Veeam HyperV: Cluster Memory Usage

This monitor tracks memory usage and demand for VM workloads on hosts in a cluster.

Veeam HyperV: Cluster Volume Free Space

This monitor tracks percentage of free space on the Hyper-V Cluster Shared Volumes.

Veeam HyperV: Host CPU Usage Analysis

This monitor tracks CPU usage on the Hyper-V host (including host partition usage and VMs usage).

Veeam HyperV: Host Memory Pages/sec

This monitor tracks host partition memory demand.

Veeam HyperV: Host Memory Usage Analysis

This monitor tracks percentage of memory that is currently allocated to either VMs or host partition (compared to all available memory).

Veeam HyperV: Host Network Queue Length

These monitors tracks the number of threads waiting on the physical and virtual network adapters.

Veeam HyperV: Host Local Disk Latency Analysis

This monitor tracks read and write latency values for Hyper-V host local disks (if used for VM storage).

Veeam HyperV: Local Volume Free Space

This monitor tracks percentage of free space on Hyper-V host local volumes (if used for VM storage).

Veeam HyperV: VM Checkpoint Analysis

This monitor tracks the age and size of VM checkpoints.

Veeam HyperV: VM CPU Usage

This monitor tracks CPU usage for the guest OS.

Veeam HyperV: VM Memory Pressure Analysis

This monitor tracks memory demand for the VM.

Veeam HyperV: VM Storage Errors

This monitor tracks errors that have occurred on the virtual storage device.

Full description of all Veeam Hyper-V MP monitors is provided in Appendix C.
