I have a Dell PE720XD with 20 600GB 10k RPM drives configured in RAID6.

I'm in a process of moving about 10 servers onto this virtual host running Server 2012/Hyper-V 3.

I've been trying to figure what what performance objects I should monitor to get a good idea if I'm running into bottlenecks, specifically disk. I have 129GB RAM and 2 8 core CPUs so that will less likely be an issue and it's easier to see a bottleneck there. But with disk sybsystem I find it more confusing to figure the right objects and data to look at so I would appreciate more details what to look at

Thank you

Hi,

Actually it depends upon your environmental setup and your capacity planing.Generally speaking average 80-90% threshold is good.
