One of my team mate reverted a snapshot without intimating any body.
We tried to find it through Events. But there was no record.
Where we can find the details about reverted snapshot?

On my virtualization system there are some VMs. One of them was aimed for testing some services on it. So in this case i need to have the first state of that VM.
I search for solution too much and find the snapshot as a good approach for it. Then search deeper and found out that the virsh can do it form by snapshot-create. but beside it, there is an other command, snapshot-create-as.
I have Ubuntu 12.04 and VirtualBox 4.1.12. All manuals and help documents refer to Snapshot tab in top right corner of Virtualbox manager. But I have no idea where can I find it. Screenshot is attached.
Does anybody know anyting about how can I get acces to Snapshot manager tab? (Take a snapshot I can when machine is running).
The server runs the following operations often. It takes a snapshot of a logical volume, then backup up the content to the remote backup server. It is possible that multiple backups and transfer happen at the same time. Will too many rsync sessions and mounted snapshot volumes be a problem?
I've been experimenting with LVM and how I can use it for managing data on my NFS server. With everything that I've read about snapshots, I am still unsure about how they perform in real life. Why does one need to allocate space in the snapshot if they are just a bunch of pointers to the original data?
