comment Hyper-V Dynamic Memory - virtual machine memory usage and host memory demand do not make sense
TomTom, I'm quite certain about how it works. (The guy who wrote the code is sitting two doors down from me at the moment.) Adding of memory beyond the "startup" value does, in fact add new memory to the VM. That memory can't be removed from Windows entirely, at least not without causing all the device drivers to be rewritten. So it's ballooned.

comment Disk latency within a virtual machine
No, I'm not suggesting they're useless. I'm merely pointing out that time within a VM is virtualized, and thus measurements of anything that tries to look at small time quanta will result in messy data. Data you collect over long periods of time will be generally right. Looking at any small-span time period may not be accurate.

comment Disk latency within a virtual machine
I'm not sure what your terminology is getting at. Yes, CSV is the file system that is typically used for VHDs, and that sits on a volume, which is shared across the host cluster. That volume sits on top of a LUN, which is part of a disk pool, usually (with Server 2008 R2) in a SAN. What, specifically, are you asking?

comment No disks were found on which to perform cluster validation tests
Mapped drives (also called SMB shares) are valid cluster storage, as long as the SMB server is capable of SMB 3.0 or later. But you still won't see any "disks" in the cluster wizard, as you're not presenting disks to the cluster, you're presenting a network share.

comment Why does increasing logical processors in Hyper-V for virtual machine increase performance.
@Dan, that's an issue specific to VMware. It doesn't affect Hyper-V.
