Veeam Task Manager for HYPER-V

Veeam is a company who is famous for their backup and replication software for virtualization platform. Recently they have release a small utility which helps HYPER-V admins to understand each VM’s resource utilization at a glance from Windows Tsk Manager itself.

By default Microsoft Windows Server OS Task Manager will only show you the performance characteristics related to parent OS. For us to find VM level performance detail (Eg: CPU, Memory) either we open the hyper-v manager MMC or use VMM. With this nifty utility we can do that from the default Task Manager itself!

What more interesting is we can run this utility in client OS like Windows 7 and onwards and connect to HYPER-V servers and remotely view the resource usages (Tip: Make sure TCP port 445 is open for that)
