Dear Flegy,

please add the Hypervisor as device object in PRTG, then create the according sensor. It requires the according credentials entered into the device settings (section Windows Credentials).

As alternative, you could use the Windows Network Card sensor directly on the virtualized devices if you add them the PRTG as well.

Thanks for your answer. If I understand you correctly, I need access to virtual machine Linux or windows to be able to track network and cannot do it as host for each virtual? Because we don't have access to virtual machines, once we create it is on owner use.

Dear Flegy,

you can either add the Hypervisor itself as device object in PRTG, and add the Hyper-V Virtual Network Adapter sensor.

Or you can add each virtual device as if it is a normal computer, and add an according traffic sensor.
