Identify if virtualization hosts are congested
CONTEXT: We are monitoring virtual servers that share a VM host.
PROBLEM: If host resources are overallocated, the physical resources can be contended even if the virtual resources aren't. This is not easy to spot in SQL Monitor.
• Add virutal host counters for VMware and Hyper-V to the analysis graph: CPU, Memory, disk...
• Integrate with a Virtualisation monitoring solution to connect the dots more easily
We are currently considering how best to support this suggestion. If you have any further details of what exactly you would like to see, please leave a comment or email us direct – it’s great to have details about real use cases and requirements to consider while we are reviewing this.

Hi Daniel. Main benefit of having such options inside SQL Monitor would - imho - be to more easily correlate timings of some events. Other than that, it makes sense that dedicated hypervisor monitoring tools offer more.
Any progress on this?
This is in our project plan but unfortunately we do not have any ETA on this yet.
