    • Host Memory Usage - Total Memory Used By VM's and Total Memory used by OS Partition.  Customers will better understand how the Hosts are allocating memory to the VM's.
    • Host CPU Usage - This is the amount of CPU that the Hosts are using for Hyper-V, it will also show the total CPU % the operating system is using on the host.  This gives customers a better understanding of how CPU is being used on the Hyper-V Hosts.
