How to manage VM performance

Postby guest » Sun Apr 20, 2014 9:24 pm

One of our clients asks these questions:
◦How do you monitor the performance of your VMs?
◦How do you know how much memory a specific VM uses?
◦How do you monitor the bandwidth used by a specific VM?

Based on my experience, we can monitor the performance of our VMs (including disk I/O performance, Memory performance, Network performance, Processor performance) via Performance Monitor or System Center Operation Manager 2012.



Method1: Performance Monitor

While most of the principles of analyzing performance of a guest operating system installed on a Hyper-V virtual machine performance are the same as analyzing the performance of an operating system installed on a physical machine, many of the collection methods are different.



You can add different counter to help you monitor Hyper-V virtual manchine performance. More information about Performance Monitor for your reference:

Method2: System Center Virtual Machine Manager + System Center Operation Manager.

You can connect Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) with Operations Manager to monitor the health and availability of the virtual machines and virtual machine hosts that VMM manages. You can also monitor health and availability of the VMM management server, the VMM database server, library servers, and VMM Self-Service Portal web servers, and see diagram views of the virtualized environment through the Operations console in Operations Manager.



After you connect Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) with Operations Manager, you can create and view reports relating to VMM managed components, including virtual machine hosts, virtual machines, and VMM-related servers (for example, library servers.)

I'd like to recommand you that you can choose Method 2 since it will not only help you Monitor your virtual machines also help you manage your virtual machine more efficiently.
