Hyper-V Explorer Summary

This is the first tab that appears open by default when you access the Hyper-V Explorer. It displays high-level information about the resource utilization and the selected component’s resources, such as its operating system, physical host, storage capacity, and others. The appearance of this tab depends on the object or group of object selected. For example, exploring a group of clusters shows a combined CPU consumption chart followed by a list of clusters, while exploring a virtual machine displays detailed resource consumption for the selected virtual machine.

Hyper-V Explorer Summary tab

The Hyper-V Explorer Summary tab shows a summary of system resources for a selected cluster, server, or virtual machine.

This tab appears in the Hyper-V Explorer when you select a cluster, server, or virtual machine instance on the Hyper-V Explorer Topology tab.
