/*
Get Virtual Guest details.

Retrieve virtual server information and print a report with server hostname, domain, ip addresses,
cpu, ram, operating system, etc.
This script makes a single call to the getObject() method in the SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest service
and uses an object mask to retrieve related information.
See below for more details.
