Task Lists

In This Guide

What is a task list?

A virtual machine's task list is a visual representation of all actions carried out on the machine. An example of a task is any power related actions.

The following is logged with every task:

  • Progress / Status
  • User
  • Date/Time Initiated
  • Date/Time Started
  • Date/Time Finished

Accessing the task list

Tasks lists are available on individual virtual machines, as follows:

  1. Choose Compute -> Virtual Machines from the left sidebar
  2. Select the desired virtual machine

The most recent tasks will be displayed at the bottom of the virtual machine overview screen. To view older task select Tools -> Tasks from the menu beneath the machine's hostname.

Other task lists

Note, the main task list is related to the virtual machine only. Individual resources within the virtual machine, i.e. a disk, have their own task list within their individual overview pages for mount/detach and backup restoration progress etc.
