Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

Considering that PowerPlay is designed to be used with Cubes, which are built using Transformer using (typically) IQD's, which fundamentally are SQL statements....

The answer would be "Sure, but why would you?"  

In theory, PowerPLay allows you to create CSV outputs.  These could, I suppose, be used as part of a ETL like process.  A lot here depends on what you think you mean by "ETL".

BTW, if by Powerplay you actually mean Impromptu (which is a sister product, and often the source of the IQD's used in PowerPlay), then the answer becomes a bit more "yes", but its still a bit of putting a round peg into a square hole.  Use Cognos Data Manager, which IS an ETL tool.
