How to Check Shutdown and Restart History on Linux
Getting information about the last shutdowns and reboot history is rather easy on Linux.
As a system administrator, it's your responsibility to keep the system up and running to avoid any service disruptions. However, sometimes, there are situations when your system shuts down or reboots. This can be due to the system unexpectedly losing power or some user intentionally rebooting it.
Whatever the reason is, you can check your Linux system's shutdown and restart history to see when this activity exactly happened. This information will provide you with a starting point to begin the troubleshooting.
