Hyper-V Explorer Storage tab (virtual machines)

The Hyper-V Explorer Storage tab displays combination of embedded views displaying disk volumes associated with a selected virtual machine. It identifies the virtual machines that spend the highest amounts of disk resources. Use this tab to find out more about the overall consumption of disk resources for a given virtual machine. The information provided on this tab can help you prevent potential bottlenecks by reallocating disk resources where they are most needed.

This tab appears in the Hyper-V Explorer when you select a virtual machine on the Hyper-V Explorer Topology tab.

Figure 87. Storage tab (virtual machines)

This tab is made up of the following embedded views:

Lists the disk volumes associated with the selected virtual machine and shows performance metrics associated with each disk volumes.

Available Space. The amount of space available on the disk volume.
I/O. The data transfer rate of the disk volume.
Latency. The disk volume latency.
Name. The disk volume.
Disk Volume, Avg/Peak Latency. The average and peak latency rates for the selected disk.
Hyper-V Server, Avg/Peak Latency. The average and peak latency rates for the Hyper-V server associated with the selected virtual machine.

Contains information about the current utilization of disk resources for the selected virtual machine.

Virtual Machine, Current Utilization, Allocated. The amount and percentage of disk space allocated to the virtual machine.
Virtual Machine, Current Utilization, In Use. The amount and percentage of disk space the virtual machine uses.
Virtual Machine, In Use. The percentage of disk space in use by the virtual machine.
Volume, Current Utilization, Allocated. The amount and percentage of disk space that is allocated for use.
Volume, Current Utilization, Available Space. The disk space available for allocation.
Volume, Current Utilization, Capacity. The total amount of disk space.
Volume, Current Utilization, In Use. The amount and percentage of disk space that is currently in use.
Volume, In Use. The percentage of disk space that is currently in use.
Table 33. Virtual Machine Disk Capacity: Virtual Machine

Lists the disks associated with the selected virtual machine and shows their performance metrics.

Available Space. The space currently available on the disk.
Capacity. The disk capacity.
In Use. The amount of space used on the disk.
Disk. The name of the disk.
Time To Full. The estimated time after which the disk will be full.
Total Space. The total space allocated to the disk.
Weekly Growth Rate. The estimated growth pattern of the used disk space.

Hyper-V Explorer Processes

This tab only appears when you are exploring individual servers and virtual machines, and have Foglight Evolve Cloud for Infrastructure installed. It displays an organized view of process information gathered by Foglight Evolve Cloud for Infrastructure agents from a virtual or physical machine configured to send process information. When you open this tab, the process information for the selected server or virtual machine appears, allowing you to view the current CPU, memory, and monitored process statistics.

Figure 88. Processes tab

Hyper-V Explorer Cost

This tab only appears when you are exploring individual virtual machines. It provides information about the costs associated with the selected host usage. For example, an organization decides to build a new virtual infrastructure, mandating that any new physical machine must first be created as a virtual machine. Use this tab to verify the potential workload. If the results show that the virtual machine cannot properly handle the application requirements, you can explore possible physical machine options.

Figure 89. Cost tab

Hyper-V Explorer Cost tab

The Cost tab contains information about the costs associated with the selected virtual machine’s usage. The information about these costs is provided by the cost models and server assignments that are configured in Foglight Evolve Cloud for Chargeback. For more information about Foglight Evolve Cloud for Chargeback, see the Foglight Evolve Cloud for Chargeback User and Reference Guide.

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

Figure 90. Cost tab

This tab is made up of the following embedded views:

Table 34. Cost Breakdown

Shows the levels of Tiered Flat Rate (TFR) and Measured Resource Utilization (MRU), including the base cost and the cost of add-on’s, if applicable.

Add-Ons. Shows the cost of upgrades to standard host configurations. These upgrades could include hardware, software, licensing, or even infrastructure items such as rack space or power backup units.
Base Cost. Shows the cost of a standard host configuration.
Table 35. Host Add-ons

Lists the existing host add-on’s and allows you to edit the existing add-on’s. Add-on’s are upgrades to any standard host configuration. These upgrades could include hardware, software, licensing, or infrastructure items such as rack space or power backup units. Add-on’s consist of other costs incurred in the IT infrastructure.

Add-On. Contains the name of the add-on.
Edit. Allows you to edit a selected add-on.
Description. Contains the description of the add-on.

Provides an overview of the measured resource template host assigned to the host. Measured Resource Utilization (MRU) is based on actual percentage utilizations of CPU, Memory, Network, and disk IO weight. You can create templates based on these levels.

Description. The description of the template associated with the selected virtual machine.
Hypervisor. The name of the server in which the virtual machine is running.
Lifecycle. The length of time the selected virtual machine will be used.
Status. The template status.
Template Assignment. The name of the template associated with the selected virtual machine.
Total Cost. The total cost of the selected virtual machine for the duration of its life cycle.
Table 37. Tasks

Contains access to wizards that allow you to set up TFR tiers, MRU templates, and edit add-on’s.

Edit Add-Ons List. Starts a wizard that allows you to add add-on’s to the selected virtual machine.
Set MRU Template. Starts a wizard that allows you to create a measured resource template and associate it with the selected virtual machine.
Set TFR Tier. Starts a wizard that allows you to create tiers and associate them with the selected virtual machine. A tiered flat rate (TFR) is a pre-configured level of expense that is associated with a virtual machine.

Provides an overview of the tiered flat rate assignment. A tier is a level of expense for a host machine. Using the Tiered Flat Rates (TFR) you can determine monthly costs of the selected virtual machine.

Description. The description of the tiered flat rate associated with the selected virtual machine.
Rate. The rate of the tier cost over time.
Status. The tier status.
Tier Assignment. The name of the tiered flat rate associated with the selected virtual machine.
