FAQs about Virtual Server management

My Virtual Server was rebooted. Why is that event not logged in the History?

The History record only shows events that were performed manually, by actual people, using the dashboard. 
Actions started from within the virtual server, such as for instance an administrator rebooting the virtual server from a remote management session, cannot be logged. 
Automated actions resulting from for instance API requests and platform management tooling will also not be recorded in the History page.
