If I want to speak of hypervisor utilization, what exactly am I referring to.

Am I referring to 1> the utilization of the entire machine (since the hypervisor controls the macihe), or to only the utilization of the thread or process that is running the hypervisor (as opposed to the hypervisor plus all the VM's)

Thanks

hypervisor is the layer or "software" that runs virtual infrastructure. So, in this case, speaking of VMware, hypevisor is virtualization software that is vSphere (TypeI), or VMware Server (TypeII), or VMware Workstation (TypeII) or VMware Player (TypeII)

So, if you're speaking of "hypervisor utilization", you mean resources, typically, your ESXi (or ESX if running legacy vSphere) is utilizing (disk, compute, memory)

Does that mean the aggregate resources the VM's are running along with the core hypervisor, or simply the resources used by the core hypervisor (without the resources used by the VM's)

WithOUT the VMs typically. But it depends on the context of how you're using the statement.

A hypervisor is simply a virtual machine manager.
