  1. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    I setup the bond again just to answer your questions... I did the config on the web UI, then only added bond-primary enp65s0 to /etc/network/interfaces.new and reboot. Everying as I thought I had done before, but now iptraf is only showing traffic on the mellanox... Not sure what I could have...
  2. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    So back to square 1: the mellanox works fine on its own (no bridge, only the interface setup on vmbr0) without the ixgbe setting. Bridge comes up after boot and all vms are reachable. Not sure why I added that setting on the first place... I tried creating the bond again (active backup with...
  3. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    Cool, thanks, I did run update-initramfs -u. Nah, you didn’t miss anything. But it was the only way I found to make the interface work (it's connected with a Ubiquiti DAC to a US-48). Maybe there's a similar option for mellanox drivers? Now that I think about it, I'm wondering if the...
  4. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    Thanks for the help! And yes, that's how my config looked like. Only the bond and bridge on auto start, but no luck. I'm wondering if my issues may be related to the ixgbe driver. I had to add options ixgbe allow_unsupported_sfp=1 to /etc/modprobe.d/ixgbe.conf for the interface to work but...
  5. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    Thanks! I gave that config a try last night but after rebooting I had all sorts of network issues, it seemed to be switching back and forth from one interface to the other. Ended up reverting to no bond and with enp65s0 directly on the bridge until I can find out what is going on. Just now I...
  6. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    Many thanks for the replies! Active backup bonding is exactly what I need here, I'm glad I didn't try just adding another interface to the bridge first :P Through the web UI I created the bond and added the 10gb interface (enp65s0) and a 1gb interface (eno1) but regardless of which one I type...
  7. Bridge with 1gb and 10gb ethernets?

    What should I expect if I create a bridge with a 1gb port, a 10gb port and connect both to the same switch? Will it automatically use the 10gb link for higher speeds? I have an annoying case that when our server gets rebooted, we need to manually disconnect and reconnect the DAC cable to the...
  8. Automate snapshots to a local backup pool

    I found myself needing to automate snapshot creation and sending them to a local pool. Didn't find a premade solution so wrote this -maybe ugly but reliable- bash script: https://github.com/delebru/zfs-local-sync Sharing here in case someone knows a better way or maybe someone else can benefit...
  9. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    Thanks LnxBil for that info! I was always a bit skeptical about creating the pools with 4k sectors just because... I tried running the VM on a 32k block size dataset as recommended and it made the builds faster by about 20%. I did also try installing Windows directly on the SSDs without...
  10. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    Thanks for the comments! I have a build running now, if it's still slow I'll give that a try.
  11. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    The HD Tune graph and "Transfer Rate" results are of a sequential read speed test with the default 64K block sizes. Maybe there's a better way to benchmark the drive's performance? That VM is running a build server for Unity 3D projects. Each build has to process thousands of images which makes...
  12. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    Since I need this Windows VM to have fast drives I'm beginning to believe the best option might be be installing windows in the host and Proxmox on a Hyper-V for the LXCs... I would really like to avoid doing this so if there's anything else I can try please shoot because I'm running out of ideas :(
  13. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    Trimmed the ssds, recreated the pool with ashift 9, added the zfs storage on the webui with 4k as block size, restored the VM from a backup and got even worse results: with atime=off and xattr=sa with atime=on and xattr=on But reading and writing on the ssd pool from the host seems normal...
  14. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    Firstly thanks everyone for the comments!!! Really appreciate it :) Turning on writeback cache seems to have some improvement: atime was already off, changed xattr from on to sa but didn't have any impact on the benchmark. Disk images were already in raw format. @...
  15. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    I'm running Proxmox VE 5.2 on a local server I setup a few months ago with 8x 2TB hard drives on a RAID-10 like ZFS pool. The server has about 10 LXCs which seem to run super fast, and only one Windows 10 VM which seems to have a quite poor disk performance. I thought the poor performance was...
