Collection on a HyperV Environment
Vmware environment, we can collected all the ESX hosts details from VCenter installed system; In a HyperV whare we can collect all the HyperV Hosts details ?
or do we need to run collector all the hosts ?
Sure, you do it the same way. You add one member of the Hyper-V cluster and Live Optics will attempt to walk the cluster and add the other nodes.-1
as i had the same challenge today, just one question to complete this thing here:
The HyperV-Cluster consists of two hosts. We added the one where we deployed the Liveoptics-Folder and startet the run. So what the collector does, is adding the "missing" host by itself?
The other host would attempt to be found prior to you staring the collection. It would show in the server list on the screen where the start and duration Options are found. If it's not found, then you would use the "Add Remote Server" and add it manually.
When all member of the cluster are there, then you would start the collection.0
thank you for the quick response!
In a hyper-v environment the VMs won't be listed as VMs?
We started the collector on one of the two hosts and there are shown no VMs in the dashboard but several disks on the host. I guess this are the "VMs" on the host?0
They will not be listed in the Left Hand navigation on the performance tab or the collector prior to start. Only the Nodes & Node drives will be. This prevents double counting of performance and capacity.
The VMs will be listed at the project or node level under "Guest VM" Tab after you start the collector and revisit the online Viewer.
Individual VM performance can be collected, you just need to target the VM itself. However, collecting from the node will get everything at once and get all aggregate performance at the cluster level.0
This is what i can see actually:
While beeing in the "performance view" i can see the host with 13 - i guess this are the VMs runnign on this host?0
No, these are disks.
At the project level, the first screen shot, I see that no VMs are being seen. See where it says "Guest VM = 0" in the server roles. If this Hyper-V environment is actually running VMs, then this is a support ticket and we would need to you to an actual ticket and not use the peer support forums. (Which I have just done for you)0
