eG Enterprise is a comprehensive solution for monitoring and managing all aspects of Hyper-V farms, whether the infrastructure is used to support virtual server or virtual desktop applications.
Using a 100% web-based architecture, eG Enterprise offers end-to-end monitoring of the Hyper-V virtual infrastructure, with a choice of either agent-based or agentless monitoring. Extensive, pre-defined, customized models are available for monitoring all components of the Hyper-V farm. Use eG Enteprise for immediate insights into Hyper-V performance:
eG Enterprise also supports mixed environments where some applications execute on physical servers or a public cloud, to give you a single-pane-of-glass view of your entire infrastructure, end to end.
From a Hyper-V monitoring perspective, eG Enterprise includes best of breed capabilities that help administrators easily track the health of their servers and VMs. Administrators are immediately alerted if abnormal usage patterns are detected and these same metrics also provide key insights for capacity analysis and planning:
The virtual machines running on the Hyper-V servers are auto-discovered and their relative CPU, memory, disk and network activity levels are tracked in real-time. Well-recognized bottleneck indicators such as CPU and disk queue lengths are monitored so performance degradations can be proactively reported.
Besides monitoring the resource usage of VMs, eG Enterprise hyper also embeds a patented inside and outside monitoring technology that allows the same agent/agentless monitor to provide details about the VM operating system and applications running on it. This key capability allows administrators to easily correlate the performance of a VM with the performance of applications running in the VM. The ability to get this level of detail without requiring agents on each of the VMs is a key capability of eG Enterprise.
Since there are so many components of a Hyper-V infrastructure, a monitoring solution can collect thousands of metrics. The challenge for an administrator is how to analyze metrics from Hyper-V monitoring tools to quickly determine where a performance bottleneck lies – is it in the network? database? application? virtual machine? storage? etc.
eG Enterprise dramatically simplifies this effort with pre-defined thresholds for key metrics based on industry standard best practices. Auto-baselines are also determined for important time-varying metrics and any deviation from the norm is immediately flagged to administrators proactively.
Once abnormalities are flagged from different layers and tiers in the infrastructure, eG Enterprise uses a patented virtualization-aware, automatic diagnosis technology to determine where the source of a problem lies. This technology auto-discovers various kinds of dependencies in the infrastructure including application to application dependencies, application to virtual machine mappings and virtual machine to physical machine dependencies.
A Hyper-V infrastructure can be dynamic (with VMs moving from one physical machine to another), and so eG Enterprise discovers these dependencies in real-time. The dependency information is then used to correlate between alerts from different tiers of the infrastructure. Root-cause alerts are assigned the highest severity, while effects of problems are downgraded in priority. With this capability, administrators now have actionable events – they can focus their attention on the root-cause of a problem and not be distracted by the effects.
From their web browsers, administrators also have access to personalized reports about the Hyper-V infrastructure. While executive reports offer high level overviews of performance that are ideal for C-level executives, operations reports offer detailed drilldowns that can be used for problem troubleshooting and diagnosis as well as for capacity planning.
The eG Hyper-V Monitor embeds extensive reporting capabilities. These reports enable effective post-mortem analysis of past problems, help isolate potential performance bottlenecks, and aid in efficiently planning the future capacity of your critical systems/servers.

“eG stood out because its product took a real user problem all the way from the final root cause analysis and did so in a fashion that was very easy to track back.”
