How Does eG Enterprise Monitor SCVMM?

eG Enterprise monitors SCVMM in an agent-based manner. The eG agent on the SCVMM host runs Powershell scripts and uses Perfmon counters to pull a wealth of performance metrics from SCVMM. To run the PowerShell scripts, the eG agent requires the permission of an SCVMM administrator with 'read-only' privileges. In order to grant this permission to the eG agent, you need to configure the Domain, Username and Password parameters of the eG tests with the domain name and credentials of an SCVMM administrator with 'read-only' privileges.
