If you want to track the use of a virtual machine in your Hyper-v environment. This blog post may interest you. Resource metering uses PowerShell cmdlets to track various performance metrics for individuals VMs, such as:

  • CPU utilization
  • Average/Minimum/Maximum memory usage
  • Inbound/Outbound network traffic
  • Disk space utilization

To use resource metering, you must first enable it for the specific virtual machine that you want to monitor. You can enable it by using the Enable-VMResourceMetering cmdlet with the following syntax:

Enable-VMResourceMetering `
    -VMName <String[]>

After you enable it, you can display a statistical report at any time by using the **Measure-VM **cmdlet with the following syntax:

Measure-VM `
    -Name <String[]>

If you want to get an extended list of VM metrics, use the Measure-VM cmdlet with the following syntax:

 Get-VM `
    -Name <String> `
    | Measure-VM `
    | Select-Object *

By default, the local Hyper-V host saves data that tracks resource consumption every hour. You can not decrease this range, but you can increase it by using the Set-VMHost cmdlet with the following syntax:

Set-VMHost `
    -ResourceMeteringSaveInterval <TimeSpan>

To resets the resource utilization data collected by Hyper-V resource metering, use the Reset-VMResourceMetering cmdlet with the following syntax:

Get-VM `
    -Name <String> `
    | Reset-VMResourceMetering

Finally, but not least, to disable resource metering, you should use the** Disable-VMResourceMetering** cmdlet with the following syntax:

Get-VM `
