Hello, I would like to know if is possible to get more details about tasks & events, Most of them are Delete virtual machine, Power off and so on, But I can see for example a task execute in all Hosts name 'Query'  and there are no understandable details about this Query except Name, Status, Initiated By, Status and Relate to Event where gave me only data and time. How to get more info/details about this task?

Task and event will show you the information about the particular task. If you are looking for in detail information, check the log files

Check the vpxd log file because the task is initiated form vcenter server. Then check vpxa log, where the communication to host goes to hostd agent via vpxa agent and then hostd log.

vpxd log located in vcenter server and vpxa , hostd log located in ESXi host under /var/log

Check the logs using timestamp, this will give you complete information about when and by whom the task was initiated. Use filters appropriately.
