OpManager now extends its virtualized infrastructure monitoring capabilities to Hyper-V monitoring, in addition to monitoring VMwares. The Hyper-V monitoring feature in OpManager provides all the visibility you need to manage your virtual infrastructure.
OpManager uses WMI to discover, classify and monitor the Microsoft Hyper-V devices. All you need to do is specify the WMI credentials, discover the Hyper-V hosts and you are good to go. OpManager discovers the devices, classifies it under the virtualization category and associates the predefined monitors in the device monitoring templates.
The biggest challenge in virtual infrastructure maintenance is to avoid sprawl and zombie virtual machines. This is achieved only by maintaining an active tracking of virtual machine list per host and a list that details resource allocated to each virtual machine. This is done automatically through OpManager active inventory probing. So even when the virtual machines do a "Live Migration" within the virtual cluster, it is captured by OpManager.
Specific to Hyper-V monitoring, OpManager has over 40 monitors on CPU, Memory, Disk and Network for the Hyper-V host and guests. Administrators can set thresholds for all these monitors and get alerted if the monitor exceeds the specified performance level.
For the host, in addition to Hyper-V monitors, admins can monitor services, windows services, URLs⁄ Websites, Processes, File and Folders, & Custom scripts.
Leverage OpManager’s powerful fault management module; get notified instantly over an email or SMS alert when there is a Hyper-V fault. Drill-down the alarm to quickly troubleshoot and resolve the problem. Plug-in scripts or automate fault resolution too using IT workflow automation module and ensure minimum downtime!
