Manage virtual machine guests

In addition to host monitoring, Ninja allows you to monitor and manage virtual machine guests. You can monitor guest health and performance, identify if guest tools are running, create custom monitors, and more, including:

  • Create notifications and alerts based on virtual machine performance
  • Create, delete, and monitor snapshots / checkpoints
  • Start, stop, suspend, or reset virtual machines

Monitor VMWare and Hyper-V virtual machines

NinjaOne allows you to manage both VMWare and Hyper-V virtual machines alongside your physical endpoints in a single-pane-of-glass. Ninja provides full monitoring and management capabilities for both Hyper-V and VMWare across hosts and guests.

Promote virtual machines for full remote management

When you need full remote management capabilities, install a standard Ninja agent on any virtual machine to promote it to a fully-managed endpoint. Ninja will treat the endpoint the same as any physical machine, giving you the ability run automations, silently remediate issues, patch the endpoint, and more.


A virtual machine (VM) is a virtual environment that functions as a physical computer. Essentially, a VM is a virtual representation of a physical computer, complete with its own memory, CPU, network interface, et cetera. There are many tools available that IT professionals use to create virtual machines, and two of the most well-known VM tools are VMware and Hyper-V. By using virtual machines, organizations can reduce costs, save physical space, and boost efficiency.

Virtual machine monitoring and management is the process of observing, controlling, and securing virtual machines. To monitor and manage virtual machines, organizations rely on RMM solutions, such as NinjaOne. With a virtual machine monitoring and management solution, IT teams have the ability to improve VM performance, prevent security threats, create reports, and gain insight into all virtual machines within an IT infrastructure.
