I am very new to the world of server-based virtualization (I've been running VM's on my desktops for years).
The organization I work for has recently purchased a Dell server that will be used run 4-6 virtual servers using Hyper-V (Windows Server 2012 Datacenter).
The machine has 15k SAS drives in a RAID 10 array, 64gb RAM and two socketed processors, each with 6 cores.
My previous company used to virtualize everything using VMWare vSphere (which this organization can't afford). I remember a co-worker showing me realtime stats about usage and performance of each VM in relation to the host.
I can't seem to find any equivalent reporting for Hyper-V. Am I missing it? I would love better reporting than performance monitor. Ideally, I'd like real-time reporting and alerts.
I've read How to monitor CPU usage and performance on a Hyper-V server with several VM's, but it doesn't provide an option other than performance monitor.
