PRTG: Hyper-V Statistics CPU and RAM Resource Allocation

This script creates a sensor in PRTG that displays the allocation of physical resources to virtual machines.

Scripts can be used to monitor a standalone / clustered Hyper-V host and / or cluster.

Canals :

  • VM Count : number of virtual machines
  • CPU allocated (%) : percentage of logical CPUs allocated to VMs.
  • CPU assigned : number of CPUs assigned to the VMs.
  • CPU available : total number of CPUs available.
  • Memories allocated (%) : percentage of memory allocated to VMs.
  • Memories assigned : amount of memory assigned to the VMs.
  • Memories available : amount of memory available.
  • Node count (cluster) : number of nodes in the Hyper-V cluster.

The memory % memory alert on a cluster is calculated to tolerate the loss of a node.

  • for 2 servers: 50%
  • for 3 servers: 66%
  • for 4 servers: 75%

Installation

1. Unzip the downloaded archive.

2. Copy file PRTG-HyperV-Stats.ps1 1 in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\EXEXML

3. Name the sensor 1 , in Scripts / EXE select the file PRTG-HyperV-Stats.ps1 2 , enter the parameters 3 , choose Use Windows access data of the parent devices < <4 and click on Create 5 .

Paramétrage capteur

Settings :

  • -Hostname <!NAME_OF_SERVER_HYPER_V!>
  • -RunningVM 0|1 : determines if the script only scans the powered on virtual machines

4. The sensor is added, click on 1 .

Installation and configuration for a Hyper-V cluster

Prerequisites:

  • Hyper-V Management PowerShell command installed on the PRTG server.
  • PowerShell cluster management command installed on the PRTG server.
  • PSx64.exe to install in the C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\EXEXML

1. Go to the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\EXEXML and make a copy of the file PRTG-HyperV-Stats.ps1 (example: PRTG-HyperV-Stats_CLUSTERNAME.ps1) 1.

2. Edit the file modifying the following variables:

  • [bool]$IsCluster = $True
  • [string]$HostName = “DNS-NAME-CLUSTER”

3. From the web interface or the PRTG console, go to the host you want to monitor and click Add sensor 1>.
