  1. qemu-ga high CPU usage

    systemctl status qemu-guest-agent.service just shows "guest-ping called" a few times every few hours
  2. qemu-ga high CPU usage

    Which log file, just standard syslog? All I see there is: guest-ping called I'm not sure how to see stderr.
  3. qemu-ga high CPU usage

    Greetings, I've got an Ubuntu 18.04 KVM/QEMU VM that is showing 40% CPU usage for qemu-ga all the time. Stopping the service fixes the CPU usage. Any ideas?
  4. Fresh install of PVE 5.1, IO delay of death

    I did a ZFS install of 5.1 a couple weeks ago and the I/O has been abysmal. I assume it was something related to ZFS because I have other systems with similar hardware running 4.4 with ext4 and it performs fine. I plan to re-do this 5.1 system as ext4 and see how it goes.
  5. Slow io and high io waits

    Is there a writeup on performance best practices when using ZFS instead of ext4. I seem to remember someone saying to use writeback instead of Default (no cache) for the VM disks but now I can't find it. does a good job explaining the options and...
  6. Proxmox VE 5.0 beta1 released!

    I just did a clean install of 5.0-beta1 with ZFS, and built a few test containers. So far, so good. Keep up the good work!
  7. Tweaking the OVH default Proxmox configuration

    The only way I've found to get Proxmox on ZFS @ OVH is to use their KVM/IP (IPMI) and mount the ISO over the WAN. It's quite painful doing it over the WAN since my upload is only 6Mbps and I'm about 30ms (round trip) away from BHS. Supposedly you can upload the ISO to them somewhere and mount...
  8. Backup in LXC with Proxmox 4.1

    If you have LXC on ext4 then it will not be able to do snapshot and will use suspend instead. That is just a known limitation. You can use ZFS instead for LXC if you need it to do snapshots. More information here: snapshot (LXC): Use storage...
  9. Scheduled backup fails consistently

    For what its worth I'm having a similar issue with LXC backups. The actual backup portion of the job seems to always complete, but when its supposed to start the container back up it is only successful about 75% of the time. I can then immediately power the container on myself and it starts...
  10. Proxmox 4: LXC Backups on LVM

    Not to hijack the thread but I have a question about the "stop" method for LXC backups. I don't mind the brief downtime so I was thinking of going this route but the "stop" concerns me. Is it really a "stop" AKA pull the power cord out? Or is it more like "shutdown" AKA graceful?
  11. Proxmox VE Firewall Help on OVH

    There was a new update to pve-firewall that I just installed tonight... (2.0-16) I'm not sure whether the newer version fixed something or simply the update process caused the service to be restarted, but either way it is working now.
  12. [SOLVED] firewall not blocking anything

    Are you running KVM VMs or LXC Containers? I'm having the same trouble (not blocking anything) with LXC Containers. I do have the enable checked at the VM/container level but no dice.
  13. Proxmox VE Firewall Help on OVH

    I've got a new Proxmox VE Instance running on OVH. I have the firewall enabled at the datacenter level and the rules that I write at that level are applying to the hypervisor correctly as I'd expect. I don't seem to be able to get the firewall rules to apply to the LXC VMs at the moment. It...
  14. Help with pve-zsync

    It's not so much the GUI operation of pve-zsync. I guess I misunderstood the point of pve-zsync. I assumed that it would replicate the VMs to a cold standby site so that they could be powered on when needed. It looks like all this does is copy the ZFS datasets to wherever you want, and there's...
  15. Help with pve-zsync

    About the same thing happened. The sender said it sent the files to the receiver. I can see that the files are present on the receiver: root@proxmox-test1:~# zfs list -r rpool NAME USED AVAIL REFER MOUNTPOINT rpool 6.75G 233G...
