History of which head a VM has been on


Is it possible to see a history of which head a Cloud VM has been running on?

During the issue with head67 on Sunday I could not access my VM. I logged into the control panel to see which head my VM was running on and it said “unallocated” or something like that (I cannot remember the exact message). I think because it had been shutdown.

I was thinking it would be nice if I could see which head it was on before it shutdown then I would know for sure that it was related to that issue.



I’m sorry, but you can’t see that history in the panel. If you send an email to support@bytemark.co.uk, we can answer the question for you, though.

I’ve filed a request for this feature. It would be cool if you could see a full history of restarts, migrations, and so on.
