Collected Metrics

Metric NameDisplay NameDescription
VMHealthSummaryVMHealthSummaryHealth Critical - The number of virtual machines that display the state as critical. If Critical it means some resource (most likely disk) has been exhausted or other unrecoverable error has occurred. Health OK- The number of virtual machines that display the state as OK.
Hypervisor_NumberOfLogicalProcessorsHypervisor_NumberOfLogicalProcessorsThe number of Logical Processors the system recognizes. The logical processors (LP) are important because they are where all the work is done. They are a representation of the physical processor.
Hypervisor_NumberOfVirtualMachinesHypervisor_NumberOfVirtualMachinesThis monitor returns the number of virtual machines, or partitions, present in the system. Each virtual machine on the system is run in a container called a partition. If you have no VMs running, this value will be set to 1 because the host OS, called the root in Hyper-V, is also running in a partition. So if you have 2 guest VMs running this value will be 3. +1 for each guest and +1 for the root.
Hypervisor_NumberOfVirtualProcessorsHypervisor_NumberOfVirtualProcessorsThe virtual processors (VPs) provides details about the guests and also if the system is overloaded.
Hypervisor_TotalPagesHypervisor_TotalPagesThis monitor returns the number of bootstrap and deposited pages in the hypervisor. The Hypervisor needs memory in order to keep track of Virtual Processors, Guest Virtual address to System Physical Address translation entries in the virtual TLB, and so on. The total pages keep track of the total amount of memory the Hypervisor is using for management or partitions. A page is 4 KBytes.
