Web hosts are now rapidly moving on to virtualization solutions to provide cheap and easily scalable hosting services such as VPS hosting, to their customers.

Reboot VM via the WHMCS oVirt interface in single click
VM reboots are often required in a virtualization solution to handle situations such as a kernel recompilation, upgrades or when the virtual machines gets hung due to reasons such as a high load.
Bobcares recently launched a plugin that integrates oVirt management into WHMCS billing portal for the customers. Using this plugin, web hosting customers can manage their VMs easily from their WHMCS itself.
Every time a VM needs to be rebooted, the web host need not take up the hassle and VM owners can easily do it from their WHMCS oVirt VM manager feature, in a single click.
Here, we’ll give a sneak peak into how it can be done using the oVirt plugin. Access the VM in the “WHMCS oVirt plugin -> VM Manager” option. Click on Edit.
You’d see a page that lists you the functions you can perform on that VM. Click on the button ‘Reboot’ and it would initiate a VM restart process.

Once you click the ‘Reboot’ button, the VM restart process would start and the following message would display in the page.
The VM stats would show ‘Reboot in Progress’ during the process of the restart, until the VM is ‘Up’.
