Hyper-V Monitoring

Copper Contributor

Does anyone have good recommendations for monitoring Hyper-V Virtual Machines? I know I can logon to the server and view the Hyper-V Manager dashboard. I would like something a little more detailed if possible. We currently are running 3 Hyper-V Hosts with a total of 23 Virtual Machines, so it would be nice to be able to monitor all of these in one place. Thanks for any recommendations.

Might take a look at System Center.

Thanks Dave! Do I need to install this on each Hyper-V Host?

System Center should go on it's own instance of windows. There may be monitoring agents that need to be installed on the machines to be monitored. Better to ask for more install / setup details here in dedicated forums.
