Performance in the Hyper-V environment gets sluggish on Saturday morning

Greetings...

I have Hyper-V environment running an application.  It had been running for 3 years.  I never had any slow performance issue on Saturday until a US client started using our application.  Every Saturday morning from 2.00am - 3.00am.  The performance on the application is really poor.  Unable to do anything.  A new user can not login.  But when this spell is over, everything becomes normal.

Initially I thought it is weekend backup or SQL maintenance.  But I moved everything from this time.  Now there is no backup or SQL maintenance running at the moment.  However, this slow performance spell still happening.

I want to check here if there is any other parameter in the Microsoft Hyper-V environment which really causing this issue.

Can someone guide me in this

you'll need monitoring to narrow it down a bit. set up basic monitors on the hosts & VMs to get yourself started and then concentrate on what you find.

In the VM settings, you can limit basic elements of the system (cpu usage, memory weighting) to balance load for more important servers.
