You can view general properties of the suspended VS in the Control Panel > Cloud > Virtual Servers menu, including such details as hostname, compute resource, location group, owner, IP addresses, and others. You can also view the Notes section that lists brief comments or reminders for the suspended VS but you cannot create new notes. 

For more information on the VS properties, refer to the Virtual Server Details section.

CPU Usage

You can view charts on CPU usage of the suspended VS in the Control Panel > CloudVirtual Servers > Label > OverviewCPU Usage tab. The charts show the total CPU usage statistics for all the cores of the particular VS for a specified time period. The vertical axis indicates the CPU usage percentage (CPU percentage is the core-independent quantity) and the horizontal axis defines a time period. 

For more information on CPU usage, refer to the Virtual Server CPU Utilization section.

Billing Statistics

You can view billing statistics of the suspended VS in the Control Panel > Cloud Virtual Servers > Label Overview > Billing Statistics tab. The Billing Statistics page contains a record of billing operations relevant to the last three-month period. If a virtual server was created less than three months ago, statistics are recorded starting from the VS's creation date. You can view all available statistics or those for a shorter period by setting a Start and End time.

For more information on how to view billing statistics, refer to the Virtual Server Billing Statistics page.

Recipes

You can view recipes assigned to the suspended VS in the Control Panel > Cloud > Virtual Servers > Label Overview > Recipes tab. If you have some custom recipe variables attached to the suspended VS, you can view them in the Control Panel > Cloud Virtual Servers > Label Overview > Recipe Variables tab. For other operations related to recipes, you need to unsuspend your virtual server. 

For more information on recipes and custom recipe variables, refer to the linked pages.

Service Add-Ons

You can view service add-ons assigned to the suspended VS in the Control Panel > Cloud > Virtual Servers > Label Overview > Service add-ons tab. You can also unassign a service add-on from the suspended VS. For other operations related to service add-ons, you need to unsuspend your virtual server.
