The Windows Service Layer

The Windows Service layer captures the applications, system, and security errors/warning events logged in the Windows event logs , and also reveals whether the core Hyper-V services are currently available or not. In addition, the layer also monitors useful Hyper-V-specific event logs and captures errors related virtual machine configurations, Hyper-V clustering, Hyper-V integration and virtual machine management services, and Hyper-V worker processes.

Figure 1 : The tests mapped to the Windows Service layer

Since most of the tests mapped to this layer have been elaborately discussed in the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, we will only be discussing the Hyper-V event log tests in this section.
