Free HyperV Performance Monitor Tool

I'm looking around for Hyper V Performance Monitor Tool. Found a tool provided by ManageEngine.

It allow you to monitor
  • CPU Utilization
  • Memory Utilization
  • Disk read/Write
  • Network Rx / Tx
for physical Hyper V host and Guest Virtual machine. Guess what - It 's Free and allow you to monitor up to 2 Hyper V host. Just download 1.2MB file and install into another machine.

Once install, enter Host 1 and Host 2 details. Set CPU threshold and refresh interval that you want the tool to gather. Once done, click Connect. You will be able to see each Hyper V Host Utilization and Guest Utilization.

The tool will change the Computer icon color when it reach warning level (yellow) and Critical (red).
Warning level:-
Critical level:-

  1. On one of the Hyper-V machines some of the counter groups show up normally in Performance Monitor but some are missing (namely Hyper-V Virtual IDE Controller, Hyper-V Virtual Storage Device, Hyper-V Hypervisor Partition, Hyper-V VM Vid Partition, Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor). This morning none of the Hyper-V counters was available – I asked admin to reboot, so some counters came back but some were still missing.
