# Microsoft Hyper-V 2012
This package is designed to monitor a Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 Server using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to monitor Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 Server by using WMI counters. The statistics gathered in this way include:
CPU and Memoryutilization
Interfacestatus and utilization
Host and guest machines are monitored.
It is preferable to install the ServicePilot Agent directly on the target server than using remote WMI collection.
- ServicePilot Agent installed on target machine: The ServicePilot Agent needs to run under an account with local administrative privileges. The ServicePilot Agent uses the local system account by default which has these privileges.
Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:
ServicePilot Agent installed on target machine:
- ServicePilot Manager Web server access (by default TCP/80 when using HTTP or TCP/443 when using HTTPS although this port is configurable): Between ServicePilot Agent and ServicePilot Manager
- ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5
- ServicePilot Agent minimum version: 8.5 installed and configured
Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.
