  • Hi,

    Good Day! And thanks for posting in our forum!

    ou don't want to monitor the virtual switch, you actually want to monitor the virtual ports of the virtual switch.  Each virtual port we also know as a vNIC (the virtual NIC of the VM).

    This is the object you monitor.  You monitor an instance for each VM.

    Monitoring the switch is like monitoring an infrastructure switch, not the same as your intent.

    The Measure- set of cmdlets give you a wealth of information here.

    • Measure-VM
    • Measure-VMReplication
    • Measure-VMResourcePool (most likely you aren't using these, very few folks even know they exist)

    In addition, Please understand that from the company's point of view, I can't recommend any third-party tools to you, but from my personal point of view, I recommend you to look at the following links:

    Please let me know if you have any question.

    Cheers,
