Administering eG Enterprise to Monitor a Microsoft Hyper-V Server

To monitor a Microsoft Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server using eG, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. The eG manager is capable of auto-discovering the Hyper–V / Hyper-V VDI server. If these servers are already discovered, then use the Infrastructure -> Components ->Manage/Unmanage menu to manage them. Otherwise run discovery process using the menu sequence: Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover and manage the Hyper-V servers as detailed in Figure 1 to Figure 2. While Figure 1 and Figure 2 depict how to manage an auto-discovered Hyper-V server, Figure 3 and Figure 4 show how to manage an Hyper-V VDI server using eG. As shown, first select the Component type, then pick the servers to be managed from the Unmanaged Components list, and click the < button to manage the servers. Finally, click the Update button.

  3. Alternatively, you can also manually add the target Hyper-V / Hyper- VDI servers using the COMPONENTS page (see Figure 5 and Figure 6 ). The components so added are automatically managed. To access this page, follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence.

  4. When you attempt to sign out, for a Hyper-V server, a list of unconfigured tests appears as in Figure 7. For a Hyper-V VDI server, a list of unconfigured tests.

  6. To know how to configure the test, refer to the topic on Hyper-V VM Information test.
  7. After configuring the test, click on the Update button in Figure 9.
  8. Once the component is managed, switch to the monitoring console by clicking on the Monitor tab. In the monitoring console, You can view the current status of the Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server. You can zoom into the managed Hyper-V / Hyper-V VDI server and view its layer model, tests, and measurements in the console. For more details on the layer model, refer to the topics on Hyper-V and Hyper-V VDI monitoring models.
