Better performance management in VMM
I like to see what performance counters on Hyper-V hosts and VMs on the following components:
These performance counters can be viewed in a graph for a day, week and month trend.
It would be nice to see what are the top hosts and VMs on CPU, memory, network and disk I/O in realtime in SCVMM without the use of SCOM
There is obviously some performance data being gathered, as this can be obtained via Powershell using Get-SCPerformanceData. However, there is no easy way to display this data graphically, and it is not clear what units the data is given in.

la posibilidad debería existir desde hyper-v, al instalar la caracteristica de Hyper-V en los nodos, un programa parecido al "Administrador de tareas" debería existir para evidenciar facilmente el consumo de cada una de las maquinas virtuales con cada una de sus caracteristicas.
I completely agree with this. SCOM is a great tool but VMM shouldn't need to rely on Operations manager. VMM should provide an abundance of performance metrics on all Hosts, VM's, Storage, Networks, etc. This suggestion should definately be included in VMM.

Absolutely agree with this idea. I'd like to add 100K votes for this idea.
As the name describes 'Virtual Machine Manager', but this product greatly lacks in managing/monitoring the VMs' performance.
I'm using the UR5 of VMM 2012 R2. And the performance monitoring of Hyper-V VMs is extremely poor.
My management has questioned me several times that why the SCVMM is not showing correct values for the utilization of Processor, Memory and Disk. And even I have heard twice that you may shutdown your SCVMM if it can't tell us these basic things.
I know that SCVMM shows the Average CPU utilization for last 10 mins, but it's always showing 0% CPU and Memory utilization for most of my production VMs during peak hours (which was over 60% in actual).
