7. Hyper-V > Performance and Virtual Network Management

Performance and Virtual Network Management

Besides creating and managing VMs, system administrators are also responsible for monitoring the performance and health of VMs, just as with physical machines.

Hyper-V delivers not only improvements in monitoring virtual environments, but also new features that are worth getting familiar with.

Resource Metering

Resource metering is a new feature that gives you information on the CPU, memory, storage, and network resources that a VM is consuming. Consider it a Performance Monitor for virtualization.

Besides giving insight into how well or poorly a virtual infrastructure is running, resource metering provides another important purpose: customer billing. As companies increasingly provide services to customers via cloud deployments, they need a way to bill those customers for service usage. With resource metering, a business can create an in-house strategy for billing customers for usage based on metrics provided. Previously, most companies had to rely solely on third-party solutions to bill for cloud services.
