Foglight for Hyper-V 5.8.3 - User Guide (Lite version)

About Hyper-V Monitoring in Foglight Evolve Cloud

Hyper-V Monitoring in Foglight® Evolve Cloud monitors a Microsoft® Hyper-V® virtual infrastructure. Better management of services can be achieved when you are alerted of infrastructure problems before end users are affected. This ensures consistent application performance at established service levels. Hyper-V Monitoring in Foglight Evolve Cloud monitors the health of your virtual system by tracking resource consumption such as CPU, network, and memory consumption for individual clusters, servers and virtual machines in your integrated environment.

About your monitored environment

Microsoft® Hyper-V® provides an innovative mechanism for organizing a virtual infrastructure using a unique combination of physical and logical components. Hyper-V Monitoring in Foglight® Evolve Cloud accommodates environments of all sizes that leverage the Hyper-V virtualization platform by examining and enhancing the Hyper-V eminently knowledgeable view of the virtual world.

Microsoft Hyper-V allows for the configuration of a hierarchical organizational structure that resides primarily within the virtual domain. This enables organizations to easily configure physical Hyper-V servers and virtual machines to reside in logical groups that dictate various aspects of the virtual infrastructure, like physical object location, resource allocations and limitations for virtual machines, and high availability settings for physical and virtual components.

A Hyper-V infrastructure contains a collection of physical and virtual objects. The physical objects within the virtual infrastructure are those with which you can physically interact. The virtual components or objects that make up the virtual environment cannot exist without the presence of underlying physical components, such as Hyper-V servers. In addition, virtual objects, such as clusters and virtual machines, allow for the advanced configuration of resource management and of high availability settings. Each Hyper-V infrastructure contains a collection of the following object types:

Clusters. A cluster object is a group of Hyper-V servers that share common storage resources and network configurations.
Servers. A Hyper-V server is a physical component required to begin building a virtual infrastructure. Hyper-V servers provide hypervisor-based architecture for controlling and managing resources for the virtual machines that run on it. Virtual machines running on a Hyper-V server share the server’s resources.
SCVMM Servers. A System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) allows you to manage host, networking, and storage resources when creating and deploying virtual machines to virtual clouds.
Virtual Machines. A virtual machine resides on a Hyper-V server. Virtual machines share many of the characteristics of physical systems (like storage and network interaction), but they do not have direct access to the hardware that is used to process. Each virtual machine runs on a guest operating system, for example, Microsoft Windows XP, and is allocated access to a specific set of the server’s resources, that includes the number of processors and the amount of memory it can leverage.
Storage. A Microsoft Windows Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) is a shared disk available for read and write operations by all nodes within a Windows Server Failover Cluster. A Windows Server Failover Cluster is a group of computers that provides continued service when system components fail.
Virtual Switches. A Hyper-V virtual switch is a software-based layer-2 Ethernet network switch. The switch connects virtual machines to virtual and physical networks.
