The CPU and memory for your virtual machines should be easily obtained for all machines at the same time using the virtualization product's management suite (vCenter for VMware, for example).

I would start to look at the DMV sys.dm_os_sys_info. Reference: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175048.aspx There are also numerous ways to do this via scripting language, such as Powershell. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd315240.aspx Hope that helps!
