Hyper-V Management Pack Extensions for System Center 2012 Operations Manager

Cristian Edwards and Diego Martinez Rellan both, Premier Fiel Engineers working for Microsoft have released the Hyper-V 2012 Management Pack Extension. The goal of the Management Pack Extensions is to add performance monitoring to the already existing Hyper-V Management Pack provided by Microsoft. The MP has monitors, rules and views. To avoid huge database consumption all rules are disabled by default. You can use these rules for creating your environment baselines.


The Management Pack provides the following monitoring features:

  • VMs Integration Services Version monitor
  • Hyper-V Replica Health Monitoring Dashboard and States
  • SMB Shares I/O latency monitor
  • Hyper-V Hypervisor Logical processor monitoring
  • Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual processor monitoring
  • Hyper-V Dynamic Memory monitoring
  • Hyper-V Virtual Networks monitoring
  • NUMA remote pages monitoring
  • SLAT enabled processor detection
  • Hyper-V VHDs monitoring
  • Physical and Logical Disk monitoring
  • Host Available Memory monitoring
  • Stopped and Failed VMs monitoring
