Power Efficiency tools to monitor VMs

Power Efficiency tools to monitor VMs


I was looking for a way to monitor the power efficiency on a visualized server environment. I did try Power Gadget on a Windows server 2008 R2 but it didn't work. Is it a way to configure the tool in order to be able to get real consumption out of the host machine?

the main hypervisors I target are VMware ESX/ESXi and Microsoft Hyper-V 2008/2012.

Thanks in advance.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

This probably won't be much help but you could take a look at Socwatch

As a starting point, here is the wiki page


Then click on the “Windows Support” Link -This will allow you to download socwatch.  socwatch actuallny needs Windows 8 or 8.1 so perhaps you won't be able to use it.  It has also not been run against a VM (to our knowledge).
