Yes, Need to know when a virtual machine reboots.
There needs to be an email sent when a VM is rebooted. You can do that now if the processor on the VM goes above a certain threshold.
We do plan to add support to indicate when a VM has rebooted in the operation logs. We will investigate whether to also add support for emailing in this situation but i like the idea.

Indeed. What would be even nicer is to be warned about pending reboots. This is what AWS does with their VM's. You typically get anywhere from a week to a month or two. You'll also get an e-mail proactively about the VM needing to be rebooted or it'll be forced by x day. If Azure could improve their service to match or the competition that would be ideal.
