It's the shutdown tracker

Thanks, I'll read those links and consider what we want to do with the info.

I suppose it might be nice if eventually the GPLPV shutdown monitor server could mark them as "planned",or even added a custom "xen reboot" reason as shown in the KB article.

That would be excellent.

Sounds like it might be a nice easy little patch ...

Not my arena I'm afraid.

Thank you all for your responses to this thread. I appreciate the work put in, and feel confident that using the package will work out for us. I'll keep an eye on updates.
