I know I can over commit CPU's on Hyper-V.
Does that imply that I have to look at the host for measuring the load ? Are there any rules of thumb ? Example: Host has 16 cores, I can have 16 VM's with some of them (or even each) more than 1 vCPU. To measure the load I have to look at the physical CPU's on the host. Sorry for asking something I surrely can Google (or Bing or...), but I'm just hoping to get a quick answer, I' m a bit running out of time... __________________ Pieter Demeulemeester

overcommitting CPU is known to cause all kinds of strange behaviour, the most frequent one being (Host load = low, VM load = low, VM speed = horrible). Like with VMware, your friends here are the somewhat more obscure PerfMon counters, my favourite being Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor\CPU Wait Time Per Dispatch which, per official definition, will give you “The average time (in nanoseconds) spent waiting for a virtual processor to be dispatched onto a logical processor.” Lower is better ;-) Everything above 2,5 ms (2,500 ns) is a cause for concer, above 5 ms is bad. This example is certainly open for improvement (i.e. put in more cores ;-) ):

Veeam One - small VM and its free after 30 days, but limited historical storage.
Great for VMware and Hyper-V __________________ Have you tried turning it off and walking away? The next person can fix it!
