We're using GFI's monitoring agent on a new hyper-v environment - think the current name for this is MaxFocus, but could be wrong. The agent is installed on the hosts as well as all the VMs.
I'm concerned that we're not getting a true picture of what's going on - and wondering if others have used GFI successfully to monitor Hyper-V environments.
On a number of the VMs I was seeing high processor queue depth. However, looking at the processor utilisation only VP 0 on each VM shows any activity - none of the additional virtual processors show any activity. Whereas if I just take a quick look at task manager in the VM I can see activity on all VPs. Would this suggest the monitoring stats are inaccurate?
Can a VM accurately report on its own processor/memory and disk usage - or do we need to be using the VM counters on the host itself?
