    Today, while logging-in to WHM I noticed an error on top right corner: "The system’s core libraries or services have been updated. reboot the server to ensure the system benefits from these updates."

    So that's what I did, I logged-in via SSH , typed reboot, and the server rebooted. Now, I want to look into the log file to see the entire reboot process including the time it took to finish the entire graceful reboot process here /var/log/messages

    However, the above log did not show the detailed reboot process, and there's no mention on the log that Graceful shutdown was being requested. Can that happen wherein a graceful reboot process won't get logged?

    But it appeared the server have done a forceful reboot and ignored my reboot SSH command. Are there such cases where the server will do a Forceful Reboot even though I just explicitly used the SSH command "reboot" and not "reboot -f" ?

    Issue solved by a cPanel Technical Analyst. It appeared not every instances of reboot is logged, so you need to use journalctl instead of /var/log/messages .
