Monitors included into Virtual Machines – Hyper-V Virtual Storage
The monitors from this application template watch stats for Microsoft Hyper-V Virtual Storage: error count, access speed (for read and write requests separately) and counters for total read and written bytes. These monitors make use of WMI, hence correct setting up WMI access is a mandatory prerequisite. More about templates.
NB: for the below monitors, set ‘Virtual Storage Name’ parameter, if present, to actual virtual storage name.
Error Count (enabled by default) Shows corresponding storage device’ error count. That’s primary health monitor for this type of resource. It should be equal to zero.
Read Speed, bytes/sec (enabled by default) Shows data reading speed for the device, in bytes per second.
Write Speed, bytes/sec (enabled by default) Shows data writing speed for the device, in bytes per second.
Total Kilobytes Read Reports total amount of data read from the storage device.
Total Kilobytes Written Reports total amount of data written to the storage device. Note: flush command clears the mentioned counters.
IPHost Network Monitor provides application templates (or just “templates” later in document), to create multiple relevant monitors in only a few clicks. Templates facilitate adding typical monitors sets; this can be particularly useful in case of big networks, when creating same-type monitors for many same-type devices is a common task. Application templates are sets of monitors that can be added, using specific predefined parameters, for a given host at once. The said set, added for given host, is displayed as a separate node in tree view pane, and is named application.
There are predefined templates; user can as well generate templates of their own – either out of existing monitors, or by cloning a predefined template. User-added template definitions are saved in XML files and can thus be conveniently augmented or applied to specific needs.
