BridgeWays have released a free management pack for Operations Manager to monitor Hyper-V R2. The default MS management pack only provides you with basic state monitoring of the Hyper-V R2 server, virtual machines and virtual networks which is nowhere near the level detail you need or would expect considering it’s a Microsoft product. The BridgeWays management pack, however, will provide you with much more as you can see in the image below. There is much more information including performance and dashboard views which is very important to effectively monitoring Hyper-V R2.
I’m not usually one to advertise 3rd party management packs but as this one is free, I thought it would be worth letting everyone know.
