Windows Resource Monitor is a nice (and built-in) tool providing a fast overview of resource utilization. On a server with Hyper-V installed, it correctly shows the CPU and disk activity generated by the virtual machines, but somehow they are excluded from the memory load statistics. Is there a way to include them?

There are free tools that monitor the CPU and disk for the hypervisor and all guests. serverfault.com/questions/395473/… –  yzorg Apr 22 '13 at 13:31

The Performance Monitor has the information you want. And, no, there's no way to modify the Resource Monitor to display what you want.

I also think that you're mistaken. The CPU usage of guest VMs is not reflected in the Resource Monitor, though the disk usage is.

It's good to know Resource Monitor includes total disk usage, I thought I'd observed that, and it's good to confirm. Any references? –  yzorg Apr 22 '13 at 13:32
