An Updated Hyper-V Monitor Vista/7 Gadget And The Hyper-V Nehalem Update Status Is Good

The server we were having a great deal of issues with has been running since yesterday afternoon with no further freezes.

It looks as though version 4 of the update has truly dealt with the timing issue Hyper-V has with the Nehalem processors.

Also, the Windows sidebar gadget we have mentioned in the past has received a substantial update:


In addition to showing the available RAM on the Hyper-V server, we now see the CPU utilization as well as which VMs have Integration Services installed (green) and which ones do not (gold).


We also have the ability to TS into the Hyper-V box to manage it, open a VM direct desktop session, and manage the VM’s power status among other things.

This tool is truly useful for at-a-glance views of all Hyper-V servers running on the network. Shown is the one server, we just have not had the time to add the others we also have on our network.
