Hyper-V views

The Hyper-V views enable you to manage the capacity of a virtualized infrastructure running Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor based virtualization system, and presents key capacity metrics and charts for Hyper-V hosts and domains. You can use Hyper-V views to see the total capacity, used capacity, remaining capacity and growth trend for CPU and memory sub-systems.

These views help you in answering critical questions related to your Hyper-V virtualization environment, such as:

  • Which host should the new domains be added to?
  • Do certain hosts require a better load balancing between them?
  • Which systems in a particular domain have exceeded their threshold values?


Ensure that the administrator has completed the following tasks:

Certified data sources

The certified data sources for these views is BMC - TrueSight Capacity Optimization Gateway VIS files parser.

You must configure and run one of these ETL modules to import data into the view.  

If you are importing data from an ETL module other than the certified data source, then ensure that you have all the metrics populated in the ETL module so that the view shows the data.


Certain metrics are required for these views. If the metrics are not imported, then corresponding columns are blank. Particularly, for Data Explorer view for this platform, you must import specific metrics for some of the charts to be available.

For a list of all the metrics in a view, see the required topic in the following views:

Data visibility

The Hyper-V view displays data for all systems of the following types:

  • Virtual Cluster - Hyper-V
  • Virtual Host - Hyper-V
  • Virtual Machine - Hyper-V
