Similar to Rebooting a virtual machine from the Cloud+ console, we also have access to a ‘Shut Off’ function:



This will send a ‘nice’ shutdown command to the controlling software for the virtual machines for your account, and send a “Power key” event to the virtual machine.

The Operating System’s visibility of this process can again be viewed from most logs, e.g. from journald in this example:

ubuntu@example-server:~$ journalctl -b-1 --no-pager -u systemd-logind --since 08:32:28
