How do I determine which configuration is currently active?

I have multiple configurations defined in one of my Linodes. While I am fairly certain which configuration is actively running, there doesn't seem to be any way to get a definitive answer from the control panel.

The last bootup was several years ago, so there is nothing on the "activity feed". I am staring at the control panel and going through every page/link, and nothing seems to show what the current configuration is.

Does anyone have an idea what I am failing to find?

Hey there,

Normally you would be right on the money with your thoughts on how to see which profile is running:

It would be listed in the "Activity Feed" tab for your Linode. This video talks about that as well:

If for whatever reason your activity feed is blank, the next recommendation would usually be to check your compute instance's console. If it is not a relatively fresh session where you can scroll back to see the tail-end of the boot process detailing which profile was used, the best way to find out which profile is currently booted would be to reach out to support team either via ticket or over the phone at the numbers below and to ask for clarity. They should have the ability to see that on the back-end.

U.S. 855-454-6633
Global +1-609-380-7100

For what it is worth, while this is a pretty uncommon use case, this is something the Linode team is aware of, and hopes to roll out as feature to make it more clear and effortless in the future.
