comment Build RAID 1 array (non-boot), apparently all data is gone?
Running 'testdisk' and other tools now, but it doesn't look good. I forgot to mention that the power failed while I was building the array at first, which is because it was late at night when I posted this. Either way, my fault if it doesn't work. Thanks for the help though.

@poige - using fdisk is supposed to give "doesn't contain a valid partition table" on a software array. I was posting that to show that it was indeed an array of 1.5TB.

comment Hyper-V PowerShell get disk usage and CPU usage (as seen by guest OS)
@RyanRies - Yes, I was actually doing that before, but the speed isn't much better, and the code is more complicated. I can run the 4-command string in the PS itself, and it takes two seconds. But for some reason, executing it from my script takes a while. The script only takes about 1/10th of a second to process the data, but I'll be sure to look into all the potential reasons. Again, this is my first time using Hyper-V in production. I try to stay away from Windows but Hyper-V is turning out to be really nice. I appreciate your time.

@RyanRies - Next question, is why do these commands take so very long to execute (four commands strung together by semicolons). It's approaching 8 seconds. Which makes instantaneous statistics for customers non-realistic. I found the bottleneck to be Windows and not my webserver or the actual script that parses the data. Oh, I did find the Measure-VM before, but it didn't have all of the information I needed. Thanks for the link though, to keep it all in one place.

@RyanRies - Awesome, this is exactly what I was looking for. And it's been like a treasure hunt for me (enjoyable) finding other elements that I can measure.

That article on the IP address of VM is exactly what I was looking for from what I can tell. I will look at it tomorrow. Thanks.

comment Hyper-V PowerShell get disk usage and CPU usage (as seen by guest OS)
@RyanRies - First question: I can run that command to get the IP of the host server. I'm actually polling the servers with the script via their LAN IP. They run a simple PHP-Powershell passthru system with some authentication, and then the frontend-script contacts those. But for example, if the host is on 10.0.3.12 and the guest is on 10.0.3.104 then how can I find the 10.0.3.104 address using strictly Powershell on the host? If it's not possible, it's fine. It would be more of a luxury.

Thanks for your comprehensive response. I will take the time tomorrow afternoon to try to work this out before I begin the database aspect of the panel. I would share what I have currently, but I'm not how to safely publish it. Perhaps you'd like to contact me by clicking my username, homepage, contact page and drop me a line. Thanks again, and have a happy and safe holiday.

Actually, the panel is for customers to rent machines with, and therefore I have no access to the actual guest software. Most machines are linux-based, some Windows, but I have no access to them.

Can you try a different cable? Maybe it has a short?
