SolarWinds releases Microsoft Hyper-V monitoring tool

Jeremy Stanley Jeremy Stanley Profile: Jeremy Stanley

There are plenty of Hyper-V tools out there to consider, but there’s always room for one more (especially when it’s cheap). IT management software maker SolarWinds released a free Hyper-V Monitor this week.

While it’s not the end-all be-all Hyper-V management tool you may need – SolarWinds also sells a manager billed as a System Center 2012 alternative for almost $3,000 – the Hyper-V Monitor does offer a few typical monitoring features. It can monitor CPU usage, memory and virtual machine stats.

The tool also features an alerting mechanism that can tell you when a server’s performance has dipped.

The Hyper-V monitoring tool – in addition to a VMware monitoring tool that’s been offered for a few years – is available for free (with registration) at SolarWinds’ website.
